Free Audible Books for Kids… adults too
Free Audible Books for kids is a practical way in which Amazon’s pitching in to help during the coronavirus crisis. The focus is kids; the relief is for parents.

An Audible listener for over fifteen years, I’m bowled over. But I blinked twice, and it was still true.
“We recently launched a free listening experience for children who are isolated and away from school and friends during these troubled times,” Audible said in an email. “Only days after the launch of stories.audible.com, many millions of children are listening around the world.”
Listen to Free Audible Books on Any Device
Not just free, but you can stream on a “desktop, laptop, phone or tablet.”
Even better, these free audible books for kids are available in English, French, Italian, German, Japanese and Spanish.
And, how’s this for special…
Thanks to Audible’s partnership with J. K. Rowling and thanks to her thoughtful Harry Potter At Home offering, I thought I would share that Stories now includes Britain’s “national treasure,” Stephen Fry’s brilliant performance of the first Harry Potter title: Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.
Pass It Along
“If you know of young children and families who would appreciate the opportunity to listen to hundreds of Audible titles, or parents who want some time to themselves while kids are positively occupied with transporting storytelling, please pass the link along.”
From there, it’s as easy as pick a book, click and start listening.
And the listens are quality, organized by age group, but if you get a chance to wrestle a device away from the kids, there are also strong offerings for adults, classics like Moby Dick, Jane Eyre and Call of the Wild.
