You can also listen to great stories by other authors such as Lewis Carroll, Charles Dickens, and L. Frank Baum.

East of the Web This website has many, many short stories for everyone. There are fiction, nonfiction, science fiction, humor, crime, and children's sections. There is also an interactive section, but I have not played with it at all, so parents may want to check it out first.Popular Children's Stories This website has nursery rhymes, picture stories, educational stories, and story series. The Holiday Stories are really interesting! Cool site!
Best Online Classic Children's Books This site is a little difficult to navigate because there are SO MANY STORIES. The stories are arranged by genre, or topic. If you want to read nature stories, just find the section called "Nature Stories". This site is probably best for older students, but there are stories for younger readers, too. You DO NOT HAVE TO BUY ANYTHING; just scroll down to the story!
