Smories - Stories for Kids, Read by Kids

Smories is a new site that features kids reading stories to other kids!  It's a simple concept and the folks at Smories have done a great job.  The site is easily navigated by clicking on any of the pictures on the front page or you can search for specific stories or types of stories by clicking the link at the top.  The site is based in the UK, so most of the narrators have an accent, but I didn't have any trouble understanding them.  Many of the stories are also from the UK, so I didn't recognize many of the stories or names of the characters.

Another great feature is the ability to view the stories on your iOS device!  The daily story is available as well as many others.  You must have an internet connection to use this webapp.  To access the Smories, use Safari on your iOS device & head to

They have a link for submissions, and I think this would be a great way for kids to practice talking, reading and publishing, unfortunately they are closed at this time.  The stories are from unpublished authors, it would be nice to the text of these stories included somewhere on the site.

Smories is a fun site that most kids will love to listen too.

Thanks to Richard Byrne of Freetech4teachers for recommending this site!
