Online Spanish stories provide high-interest reading for kids anywhere.

Reading is one of the best ways to build vocabulary and give kids consistent exposure to Spanish. These online Spanish stories are short and supported by illustrations.

Kids can read these stories on mobile devices, so they can start a new story anywhere.  The stories are also free, which makes them an excellent supplement to a home or classroom library.

The 50 online Spanish stories are divided into three groups. The first group  has stories with text, illustrations and audio. The second group has text and illustrations, but no audio. The third group of online Spanish stories are videos. Kids get the support of the images and listen to a story, but there is no text.
