Here’s what a few of our customers have said about us…
“For many years we have been taking advantage of the terrific selection of picture books that Learning Discovery has on offer.
Knowing that we can give the children a quality book with age appropriate content for such an amazing price means that all children feel equally special and takes the pressure off the parents having to meet the “Christmas criteria”. Each year the Variety Pack is chock full of new titles and we never have to worry that a child will receive the same book the following year. The service is impeccable and they always call us to make delivery arrangements to fit in with the WA school term. We highly recommend Learning Discovery as a source of excellent product at a brilliant price.”
Annette Lynch, Librarian – Whitford Catholic Primary School Craigie WA

“After receiving our first Learning Discovery Book Box I was blown away! There were so many new and exciting titles that we now have the privilege of sharing with the children in our education centre. We believe that books and reading are not only an important part of early education, but a truly special experience for children to learn, explore and grow. We are extremely grateful to be supported by Learning Discovery in providing this opportunity to the children and families in our care. What a truly wonderful service you have provided us with and we can not wait to receive our next instalment and see where the magic takes us! Thank you again! We are so happy to partner with you, bringing books to children.”
Krystal Porter, Director and Early Childhood Teacher – Freckles Early Education Centre
“I love receiving the Learning Discovery Picture Book standing order twice a year. I look forward to seeing the amazing selection of funny, colourful, amazing books that can be placed into the school library. The students love having a new picture book as a class read every week. I also thoroughly enjoy receiving the readers which have been available to purchase. The children find them easy to read, colourful and there is a variety of stories. Thank you Learning Discovery for providing awesome service and fantastic books.”
Christine Walker – Manjimup Primary School Western Australia
“Berrigan Shire Library Service and Berrigan Children’s Centre together with Berrigan Aged Care (Amaroo) have created a program titled ‘Bonding with Books’. This is a wonderful initiative for Seniors to bond with Pre-schoolers over books. The children regularly visit Amaroo where the Seniors read them a variety of entertaining and educational books supplied by Learning Discovery. Learning Discovery books are perfect to read to young children with bright clear pictures and entertaining stories to keep all ages wanting more.
We love Learning Discovery books for the variety, simple clear language and beautiful stories.”
