Short Kid Stories

February 18, 2015 -- Submitted by Brian Martin, a parent from Ireland, who is affiliated with the site.

Short Kid Stories is a site I have created for parents looking for quality short stories to read to their children or for kids to read themselves.

It contains many, many classic and modern original stories for kids, all free of charge. The stories can be read on computer, tablet or smartphone and all of them can be printed or sent to a Kindle device.

The stories can be sorted and filtered by age, reading time, story type and author. This makes it very simple to find an appropriate story in a hurry, from anywhere with an internet connection.

The classic stories and tales have been edited by myself and the original stories have been contributed by talented authors from all over the world. New stories are added to the site on a regular basis.
