Children’s Storybooks Online

(www.magickeys.com/books/index.html)

Age Range: 5-18 (Grades K-12, with parental supervision)

 

This award-winning site contains original stories with illustrations for young children, as well as stories for older kids and young adults too.

This ad-supported archived website gives you many riddles, mazes, and coloring activities that are coordinated with the stories. You can also click on a “sound” link to listen to some of the stories. One example is the book The Farm Animals – by Rolando Merino. It’s a free, complete, online, Click-a-Word Talking eBook! You can click and hear every individual word pronounced, hear every page read, and listen to real farm animal sounds!

There is real potential here for older siblings to read the online stories to their younger brothers and sisters – so it’s a friendly site for the entire family.

Going to this site is a little like going to the library without leaving home!
