Speakaboos - Listen to Fables, Nursery Rhymes, And More

I meant to post this yesterday, but I got caught up in my excitement about Soup.io and forgot to post it.

Speakaboos is a website where children can listen to celebrities reading fables, nursery rhymes, fairy tales, lullabies, and more. The list of celebrity readers includes Kelly Ripa, Clay Aiken, and Kevin Bacon along with twelve others. Children can listen and watch animated versions of their favorite stories for free on the Speakaboos website. Parents and teachers that would like a permanent copy of the recordings for use offline can purchase downloads. 15% of all revenue from downloads purchased goes to the NEA's Creative Coalition.

Applications for Education
Speakaboos provides story guides, worksheets, and art projects that teachers can use the classroom. You and your students can also create your own Speakaboos recordings.
