Audio Stories For Kids
Lots of words have popped up lately to describe things you can listen to from the internet: podcasts, audiobooks, streaming media, etc. What’s important about what’s offered here is that they are downloadable MP3s (they’ll play on virtually any audio device…and because you can download them…you don’t have to be on Wi-Fi to listen…so they are perfect for long car trips!), and that they are FREE.
In addition to our main Stories page, we are very pleased to present some quality stories read by others right here on our site.
