Free children's song and story downloads


Lately I've stumbled across several free song downloads that go with children's books. I am planning on burning some of these on CDs to take with us on a trip this summer. (P.S. In the interest of full disclosure, a couple of these songs, like a lot of children's music, really drive me batty.)

Here are some sources for free children's story downloads that we enjoy.

Free children's audiobook downloads
  • Storynory (Lots of classics and original stories here. The narrator is great. These have introductions, sometimes with a plug for a sponsor.)
  • Librivox (Lots of public domain audio here, for children and adults. Quality varies wildly.) Here are some ideas to get your started at Librivox:
  • The Chronicles of Narnia (Great narrator; each installment has an introduction from the podcast. I found it easier to subscribe to the podcast through iTunes (look on the right) than to download each file separately.)

Do you know of any other sources of free downloadable songs or audiobooks for children? Please share.

  1. Our local library offers online content via a partner website - kindle books, e-books, audiobooks, and pdfs. You can choose a 7, 14, or 21 day checkout period. It seems many local libraries are picking up similar options.
