Storyberries.com was founded in 2014 with the aim of creating a free, easily-accessible online collection of quality stories, comics, fairy tales and poems for children.
Since our launch we’ve rapidly found ourselves a beloved place in the hearts, homes and schools of children all around the world, and currently enjoy more than a million reads a month.
Storyberries offers both classic and contemporary stories in an easy-to-read format with vibrant illustrations designed to excite children and engage them around reading. It also offers discussion guides designed to encourage caregivers and children the opportunity to explore real-life issues together over stories.
Stories at Storyberries are selected and organised by theme, enabling parents, teachers, caregivers and children to share learnings from literature in addressing common childhood issues such as bullying, empathy, beauty, self confidence, helping, stranger danger and more. In doing so, we hope to harness the power of literature to empower children to understand their own evolving natures and special place in the world.
The Storyberries Mission
Our mission is threefold:
1. To create the best quality collection of free children’s stories online, allowing children all over the world to easily access beautiful, age-appropriate English-language books, enhancing literacy and fostering an early love of reading.
2. To foster understanding between people and cultures by publishing stories that represent the richness and diversity of human experience.
3. To humanize technology through encouraging dialogue around the process of reading, using technology to enhance rather than detract from our human interactions, and helping forge bonds between children and their caregivers around the pleasurable time of reading together.
The Storyberries mission contributes to the UNESCO Education 2030 Incheon Declaration and Framework for Action by helping ensure universal access to books, reading and learning, as well as helping families participate in a culture of reading that is supportive of formal educational goals.
