I have a short commute to daycare in the mornings, so I sometimes opt for silence, NPR, or my own choice of music. These podcasts are a nice break when I’m sick of the same song requests from my kid. (I’d be happy to never hear the “finger family” songs ever again).
Here are three storytelling podcasts that my 4-year-old likes:
- Circle Round: These short stories are told with voice actors (including a few celebrities in the mix). They’re intended for ages 3 to 10, but my 20-month-old stays quiet for them too. Bonus: The website includes coloring pages for each of the episodes.
- Story Pirates: Kids submit original stories for this series, which includes a regular cast to embellish the works with songs and dialogue. The adult contributors often have big-deal comedy backgrounds, and my kids like the silly stories and songs.
- Storynory: This website has a huge collection of children’s stories in audio form, as well as some original stories. Most of the narrators have British accents, so I recommend this one if you like to feel *posh.*
What do you listen to when your kids are in the car? I’m always looking for new recommendations.
