Whether you’re asking a child or an adult, nearly everyone can think of at least one children’s story they particularly like. And it’s not just classics like those by the Brothers Grimm that are mentioned again and again. Modern variants of stories for children, for example with unicorns or superheroes in the leading role, are also very popular.

Reading such stories can serve different purposes. For some, it serves to stimulate the imagination. Just before going to bed, a kids story helps us fall asleep well and have nice dreams. Here, of course, it is recommended that the plot of the story be read aloud and not be upsetting or sad, as this would likely have the opposite effect and make it even more difficult to fall asleep.

On the other hand, stories for children can also be read together as a way of learning to read. Depending on how skilled the respective child is, children’s stories with a high or low level of difficulty can be selected. This is often reflected in the complexity of grammar and word choice.

Kids Stories - Collection of Free Stories for Children

For many families, it is a nice ritual for the mother or father to tell a kid’s story in the evening. Some people are so creative and imaginative that they come up with a new story almost every day. That’s nice, of course, because it’s often just as much fun for the listener as it is for the teller. Sometimes, however, it is difficult in everyday life to be creative anew every day.

At this point, I am glad to be here to help! On this page, you will find a colorful collection of entertaining read-aloud stories for children. I have written and lovingly illustrated all the short bedtime stories myself. Some kids’ stories have a special message for the children. For example, there is a story about a tooth fairy that playfully teaches kids the importance of brushing their teeth. But there are also stories that are simply entertaining for the reader.

I hope you enjoy reading my kids stories and fairy tales. I would be happy to hear from you, so leave me a comment under your favorite story!
