Founder - Roxanne Gread
|Hi i’m Roxanne, a wife, mother of two beautiful boys, a former Primary and Special Education Teacher (babies through to early adulthood) and self confessed book worm! I LOVE reading and understand that reading at an early age leads to better communication skills, better concentration, advanced language skills and increased cognitive development. Not to mention that books create irreplaceable joy and hold lasting memories for years to come.|
Why I developed Inspire Book Box...
As a mum I experienced that reading to your little one is not always easy nor is it easy finding the time to search for the right book. I knew how important reading aloud to your child was so I searched for a solution, somewhere I could order engaging age appropriate books without having to know or research what book I wanted. There was nowhere! Thus Inspire Book Box was born. Our box will put great books in the hands of your children without stress or hassle.
Throughout my years of teaching (and regardless of student age) I have seen how partaking in book related activities greatly improves excitement and engagement. But again, as a mum I didn't have time to continually search the internet (late at night) for ideas. My team and I have developed our boxes with engaging activities that help ignite your child's enjoyment and passion so that they learn the love of reading. Using my years of experience teaching kids to read I will provide you with easy to implement ideas and tricks to ensure sharing a book becomes a wonderful childhood memory for everyone. You will be able to build your child’s book collections, instill in them a love of reading and have fun doing it, all in an affordable and exciting way.

|Hi, I'm Toni, I'm a sahm and super passionate about play based learning. When my eldest daughter was really young she had speech and sensory issues and it was during her therapy sessions that my passion for play based learning was ignited. Ever since then I've been coming up with fun and engaging ways for her to learn through play at home. Our favourite activities include sensory play, small world play and craft. You can see all our play ideas on instagram and find out more about our personal journey on my blog.

Aly May - Grow to Know
I am a Teacher and Mum with a passion for helping families prepare their little ones for 'Big School'. Before becoming a Mum in Feb 2016 I was a teacher and spent most of my years in Preschool, Kindergarten and Year One. I have a Bachelor of Education in Early Childhood and Primary Teaching and I am a wife and a Mum to Houston. I enjoy thinking of new ways parents can help their children and I want to pass my knowledge on to parents. I love the idea of children learning through play and everyday experiences where learning is engaging and enjoyable for both the children and their families. I believe that a small amount of hidden learning through play in everyday life is more enjoyable, achievable and successful.
