As parents and kids are trying to fill their days at home during COVID-19 shutdowns, Audible is helping make the search for something to do a little easier. They’ve recently launched Audible Stories, which is a library of content featuring hundreds of audiobooks that anyone around the world can enjoy for free. Best of all, it’ll stay “open” as long as schools remain closed.

Audible is known for its seemingly countless amount of titles, so finding the right audiobook can seem like a daunting task. But never fear, they have divided their selections into a number of sections, from “Littlest Listeners” to “Teen” to “Folk and Fairy Tales for All.” The titles featured in Audible Stories were hand-picked by their editors and offer a mix of education, entertainment, as well as books that both kids and adults will love—but are still suitable for younger ears.

You don’t have to register for an Audible account to get started listening. Simply point your browser towards and you can start an audiobook of your choice right away. And if you’re hooked and want to continue the service with even more titles, you can try an Audible subscription free for 30 days.
