Hello,

I am looking for some good free-of-charge podcasts of children's stories and/or fairy tales for my children (boy aged 6, girl aged 4). At this moment, I am mainly looking for some bedtime stories, so they shouldn't be too loud or contain too many funny sounds, but if you know of great free children's podcasts with lots of boom and bang, I'll also happily accept your recommendation.

What I mean by 'good' is mainly clear pronunciation and fairly high recording quality so that apart from hearing nice stories, my children can improve their English.

British English preferred, but not to the point of excluding American.icon_smile.gif

Thank you,
Maciek

Hi, Maciek. Here´s a link to an ESL site I discovered some days ago. Not exactly podcasts, but the videos seem to be interesting and you (and your kids!) might find them useful.

Good luck!

I have no idea whether Marjolein´s or my idea turned out to be useful for your kids, but at least I would have liked to know...
