Check Out These Podcasts for Kids!

It’s a gray, drizzly day, and I think most of us would love nothing more than to curl up with a good story. If you have little ones, then you definitely understand this feeling! To celebrate the (unofficial) end of summer, we’re sharing our favorite kid-friendly podcasts that will keep the family entertained (and save you from having to read Green Eggs and Ham for the thousandth time!). Enjoy, and happy listening!

Bedtime FM Podcast: Do your children like listening to bedtime stories? Story Time has lots of great stories for everyone to listen to. Each story is usually less than 20 minutes long, hopefully just long enough to keep your toddler, preschoolers, and little ones engaged. Story Time is a free fortnightly audiobook podcast for children ages 2-12.

Barefoot Books Podcast: Discover a weekly selection of award-winning children's stories and songs from Barefoot Books. We are an independent publisher specializing in carefully crafted books, gifts and digital content for children that combine the best of the present with the best of the past to educate our children as the caretakers of tomorrow. These classic children’s stories, fairy tales, poems and songs tap into the wisdom of many cultures, while never forgetting that childhood is a time for fun.

International Tales:  A great collection of multi-lingual audio stories in German, English, Spanish, French and Farsi (Persian). We strive to entertain children, stimulate the imagination, improve language skills and promote virtues through the art of storytelling. 

Stories Podcast: The Stories Podcast was created to provide family-friendly content to families on the go, Always free, the podcast is a great way to entertain kids on the go and limit screen time while encouraging imaginations.

Learn something new:
But Why – A Podcast for Curious Kids: But Why is a show led by you, kids! You ask the questions and we find the answers. It's a big interesting world out there. On But Why, we tackle topics large and small, about nature, words, even the end of the world.

Tumble Science Podcast For Kids:
Tumble is a science podcast for kids, to be enjoyed by the entire family. We tell stories about science discoveries, with the help of scientists!  Join Lindsay and Marshall as they ask questions, share mysteries, and share what science is all about.

Brains On! is a podcast featuring science and kids produced by MPR News and Southern California Public Radio. We ask questions and go wherever the answers take us. Sometimes that means talking to a food scientist or a snake handler, other times that means putting on a play about sound waves or writing songs about sleep. A different kid co-hosts each episode. We talk to them about the interesting stuff they’re doing and the things they think about. It’s a science lesson for your ears!
