Amazon's Audible have, due to the coronavirus, made a selection of audiobooks free. These are intended for children and teenagers and can be accessed without the need for an account.

There's a varied selection of titles which are also available in several languages. Not everyone has time to read to their children, especially with schools being closed and people needing to work from home, so this is the perfect opportunity to try audiobooks if you haven't already done so. 

Audible released the following statement:

For as long as schools are closed, we're open. Starting today, kids everywhere can instantly stream an incredible collection of stories, including titles across six different languages, that will help them continue dreaming, learning, and just being kids.

All stories are free to stream on your desktop, laptop, phone or tablet.
