Thanks to Amazon, subscription fees on books and audio stories for children and students of all ages have been cancelled. This means that children around the world can now have free access to literary works on Amazon Audible.
The audiobook service, owned by Amazon, is offering free streams on selected children’s stories. The books are available in six different languages; English, Spanish, French, German, Japanese and Italian.
“While school is closed, children over the world can have free access to an incredible collection of stories, including titles across six different languages, that will help them continue dreaming, learning, and just being kids”, a statement on their website said.
The aim is to keep children entertained, educated and keep their young ones active while they are on break from school as a result of the Coronavirus.
Regardless of one’s taste in literary works, there is something for everyone to listen to. Audible has a wide collection of stories for children of all ages. There is a category for little listeners, elementary, tween, teens and literary classics. All one needs to do is download the app on Google play store or Apple store for free to listen.
Smart devices such as laptops, phones or tablets can be used to stream from any location of your choice. Thus, let your children take a break from their pens and books for a digitised option designed to stimulate their young minds.
