Barefoot Books podcast = free fantastic kids stories

I have had laryngitis for what seems like forever. This has really messed up my nightly storytime with my daughters! I wanted to share a free podcast that has really helped us out at night: the Barefoot Books podcast features fairytales, and my girls really love it! Our favorite story so far is The Twelve Dancing Princesses. Go here to check it out.

I hope this helps some of you who may also have been struggling with storytime. (You could also burn some of the stories on CD if you’re planning road trips anytime soon!)
