Animated Story Books and Songs

MIGHTY BOOKChildren sing songs, read stories, play games, hear jokes and solve puzzles while they learn to read and speak English.


This is a good place if you want to find some original stories, songs, games and puzzles, plus scores of classic books, poems and songs. Everything is illustrated, animated and read out loud.

In this page you can have ?a sample of them. Hundreds more are available to subscribers, with no advertising.

Probably the animated stories and books have a difficult vocabulary and expressions for foreign ?young students, being more proper for intermediate students.

On the other hand, the sing-along songs and words and letters, for example, are better for children.


Here I leave some examples about you can find:
