As youngsters, many of us had parents who read to us. When I was little my mom read loads of “new” stories but she also read the classics such as fairy tales, Aesop's fables and some of the “Just So” stories. Once I became a mom, I continued the tradition of reading aloud to the kids.

Secretly, I still like hearing the old stories. When they are on audio you can listen along with the kids. No matter who likes storytelling, here are some timeless stories, read by Brian Cant, that you can download and add to your collection.
