Storytelling and storybook reading are incredibly powerful and enjoyable activities that significantly enhance language and communication skills, along with many other abilities. Engaging children in storytelling, exploring pictures together, and talking about the narrative fosters attention, imagination, empathy, reasoning, and early literacy development.

Access to a diverse collection of children’s storybooks can be limited in some regions, especially books in local languages or a child’s mother tongue. To address this, we’ve compiled a selection of storybooks available online for free. Our selection includes numerous wordless books, ideal for telling stories in any language—preferably in the child’s mother tongue—and tailoring the storybook’s language to meet the child’s communication needs. We hope these resources will inspire both parents and teachers.
