Best You Tube Stories for Kids


The other day I was searching for some good free story apps for kids. I have struggled to find a good free (or paid!) one that is appropriate for Pebble’s age group. Many have very long, wordy stories, which don’t hold her interest. Then I struck gold with You Tube! These classics are currently bed time favourites at our hosue, along with a couple of books (how many stories is standard at bed time? We do about four here…. yep, bed time is a long process).

How do your children enjoy stories? Do they like to use the tablets, phones, CDs and videos, as well as books?


  1. What a good idea. We hadn’t seen these before. My daughter is six but enjoyed having a look at these. Keep up the good work in finding great ideas for the kids!!

    • Charlotte is still loving these, perhaps a little too much. There’s some interesting play scenarios coming up – a post will follow soon!

  2. No, just books here Kylie although I can see my tech savvy 7 yo getting more and more interested in iPads, iPods, Kindles or whatever else is on the market. They use them at school all the time.

  4. Fantastic, I have just spent a heap of time trawling through the App Store trying to find some appropraite stories for my little ones! Thank You Kylie.

    • There is so much out there …. and not all of it is good. In fact so much of it is the opposite of good! I hope your children enjoy these stories.
