When you are on vacation, running errands or just away from home, read along stories are a great way to fill what can be hours of waiting into a lot of fun.
Listed below are more than 100 video read alouds from old classics like Where the Wild Things Are to newer favorites like Little Jumbo. It's story time online! This listening library is available all day every day (and all night!) for returning to old favorites. “Read it again!” has never been easier!
Our featured story is Bright Star, a story that encourages and empowers kids (and all of us) to overcome troubles and obstacles that seem like insurmountable barriers. This stunning picture book called Bright Star, is read by the author, Yuyi Morales, and is as good a listen for teens and adults as it is for children! You can also listen to Morales read aloud Niño Wrestles the World, Viva Frida, and Dreamers. She is a wonderful reader!
For more ideas to help keep children hearing and enjoying great stories, even when they are unable to visit a library, or are not at school, there are themed online storytimes available from the Indianapolis Public Library here.
After you finish this 100, there are even more stories at:
