Audible has announced the launch of Audible stories, letting anyone, anywhere access over 200 full-length audiobooks for free for the duration of school closures. There’s no log-in or registration required.  All the titles in the collection are available to stream straight from the web on your desktop, laptop, phone or tablet-and there’s no limit to how much people can listen.

This is a great option for some family listening or extra learning during school closures, and one that gives us a much needed break from screens.

The collection is largely geared toward school age children but there are audiobooks suitable for adults too, and many are being read by some famous voices, including Alice In Wonderland (read by Scarlett Johansson), Jane Eyre (read by Thandie Newton), Anne of Green Gables (Read by Rachel McAdams) and Frankenstein (read by Dan Stevens). https://stories.audible.com/discovery

And for some of our younger readers, David Walliams is releasing a free children’s audio story every day for the next month.Whether your children are already firm fans of the author or not, this is a sure way to add some fun and laughter to their mornings. The daily treat is nostalgically named ‘Elevenses’, and children and grown-ups can tune in for a tale elaborately told by the TV presenter, actor and comedian. And, he does all the voices!
We will continue to share suggestions, links and audio clips with students during the coming weeks. Get involved and ask your children to share with you!
Happy Reading/Listening,
