Storynory is a free podcast you can sign up for on iTunes. Each week the podcast is updated with a new story ranging from fairy tales to classics to adapted histories. I love that my kids (myself included because I enjoy listening too!) are listening to the Brother's Grimm, Aesop, and Hans Christian Anderson to name a few. Sometimes a poem is read or Greek mythology.
The stories are read by Natasha who is now a household name my girls talk about as if they are friends. Natasha Gostwick is a very talented, very animated and clear-spoken story teller with a fun British accent. I would say that most stories are appropriate for ages 5 and older, but with a little bit of explanation my 3 year old enjoys them too. We listen to them on the way to school, the park and the store. We especially love them on long car rides (perfect for those of you traveling by car this Christmas). Our favorite Christmas fairy tale is The Elves and the Shoemaker by the Brother's Grimm.
