Dial-a-Story is here! Play a free pre-recorded story right from your phone, 24/7. No internet required.
We’re here to read to you, wherever you go! Stuck in line? Sitting down to a meal? Bored on the couch? Take a break from the computer screen, build skills, and have fun!
Remember, read-alouds are not just for younger children! Everyone, from a newborn infant to a senior citizen, reaps the benefits (from increased attention span to improved English comprehension and much more!) from listening to a story read aloud.
The time we spend reading aloud is like no other time. A miraculous alchemy takes place when one person reads to another, one that converts the ordinary stuff of life—a book, a voice, a place to sit, and a bit of time—into astonishing fuel for the heart, the mind, and the imagination.The Enchanted Hour: The Miraculous Power of Reading Aloud in the Age of Distraction by Meghan Cox Gurdon
