Audible Announces New Site, Free Streaming of Titles for Kids and Families

The audiobook giant creates new site for free streaming, available in six languages.

As publishers adjust to the school closures and needs of educators and public librarians, Audible has stepped up with a new offering, Stories.Audible.com. The site will be "a place where anyone, in any country, can enjoy unlimited streaming of hundreds of titles for kids and families for free," according to the company's announcement.

The books were selected by Audible editors and are a mix of education, entertainment, and general-interest titles.

"As long as schools are closed, we will be open," the announcement said.

Read the complete message from Audible below.

Stories entertain. They teach. They keep young minds engaged. And they bring us together.

That’s why, for as long as schools are closed, we will be open. Keeping to our founding belief that the spoken word can be inspiring and transporting in deeply intimate ways, we have created Stories.Audible.com —a place where anyone, in any country, can enjoy unlimited streaming of hundreds of titles for kids and families for free.

The stories were hand-picked by our Audible editors and offer a mix of education, entertainment, and general-interest titles, from the classic to the contemporary, with a focus on stories that are suitable for children. The collection includes favorites like Winnie the Pooh, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Aladdin, Jane Eyre and The Call of the Wild.

Listeners can access the site from their computers, tablets and smartphones and enjoy selections in six languages – English, Spanish, French, Italian, German and Japanese. There’s no log in and no need to be an Audible member. Just visit Stories.Audible.com and start listening!

We hope that Audible Stories will offer children—and everyone—some respite during these unsettling times.

With our heartfelt wishes for good health for all.
