Each month, Barnes & Noble offers a free online story time for kids. Click below to listen to (and watch) The Polar Express, Where the Wild Things Are, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, or Ladybug Girl at the Beach, among others. You also can view past offerings as well, such as Green Eggs and Ham and Where the Wild Things Are. Once you click on your selection, the stories just play — there’s nothing to download. Note: Once the reading starts, you can click on the “scale video” tab so that the book fills the entire screen.
