Read-Aloud Videos by Authors, Illustrators, and Celebrities

Read-aloud videos and virtual storytimes are great forms of entertainment for children and families to enjoy at home. Not only are these videos fun to watch, but storytimes can help improve reading and communication skills and cultivate a lifelong passion for reading. Stories also bring comfort during uncertain times.

In an effort to provide more virtual resources for children during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Reinberger is currently compiling storytimes and read-aloud videos by celebrities and children’s book authors and illustrators on our YouTube channel.

Check out our YouTube playlist below that includes read alouds by Eric Carle, Grace Lin, Yuyi Morales, Dolly Parton, and more:

We also recommend this YouTube playlist by Storyline Online for more read-aloud fun with celebrated actors like James Earl Jones, Sean Astin, and Allison Janney:
