Yesterday I saw a lovely message on Twitter about our Stories Aloud picture books:
My daughter is loving the audio versions of her
NosyCrow</a> books. <a href="http://t.co/ZpRHhwis18">pic.twitter.com/ZpRHhwis18</a></p>— Law West Big (LawWestBig) January 18, 2015
Stories Aloud, if you have not come across it before, is our innovative digital audio project, bundling together free, online audio readings with all of our paperback picture books. Launched in 2013, our Stories Aloud books have been streamed a combined total of over 200,000 times.
As with our apps, all of the Stories Aloud books use (mostly non-professional) child narrators – many of them our own children and their friends – and we’re looking for new readers!
We’ll be recording our next batch of Stories Aloud titles this coming weekend (Sunday 25th, to be exact), and we’ve had a couple of cancellations, which mean there’s now some space in the studio – so if you are based in London, and think your child might enjoy reading picture books aloud, we’d love to hear from you!
We’re looking for children between the ages of 6 and 11, with a clear speaking voice who can act well and with confidence. If your child is a confident and fluent reader, then so much the better. We’ll be at a recording studio in Farringdon – typically a recording session will last for about an hour for each child, but it might be shorter if the part is a small one.
If this is something that you think your child might be interested in, and you’re free on Sunday, do get in touch! If you can, send an email to tom at nosycrow dot com with a recording of your child reading something.
