Get Kids Reading with Sooper Books Free Online Library!

Sooper Books

Homeschooling week one is complete and its safe to say it has been a learning curve for us.

In our house we have started the day with PE with Joe on YouTube, which has seen both my husband and I join in……….we are aching in places we had forgotten existed.

Lessons haven’t quite gone the way we would have liked. Sebby is happy to do his Maths workbooks, but English is another story, whilst Eliza is happy to do English but not enjoying the maths as her way of doing long division is very different to the way I learned, which is causing frustration for us both.

One thing the kids do all enjoy is reading, but we are zooming through all the books we have in the house, so have started looking for an alternative source for books and bedtime stories to read.


Sooper Books is a popular online children’s library where families can enjoy book-shop quality children’s stories free of charge at the click of a button. The collection includes contemporary classic fairy tales and award-winning original stories for 4-10 year olds. All stories are optimised for perfect read quality on mobile, tablet and desktop and are 5-15 minutes in length. Just right for busy modern families!

They’ve also recently started working with an award-winning BBC narrator so there will be a steady stream of free audiobooks available soon, perfect for younger children, with the first, “The Three Little Pigs” live now.

If you are struggling with school work at home, reading once a day is one of the best ways of keeping your child’s brain active, and will have a direct impact on our child’s ability to learn effectively when they go back to school. Sooper Books has launched their Get Kids Reading Campaign which has a number of helpful resources for parents to get their kids reading.


Sooper Books is founded by Charlene and Simon, an award-winning creative married couple from London (with a baby on the way). Charlene trained as a professional illustrator at one of the UK’s top art schools, works with clients all over the world and has her own line of greeting cards on sale. And Simon is an award-winning author, who escaped the world of Investment Banking to follow his dream as a storyteller.

  1. Oooh Oooh. Love seeing your process. One of your story ideas just pinged a new article that I read and haven’t been able to keep out of my head but it didn’t immediately strike me as picture book. But now I see the path. Glad my antenna was up. Day 29: Check! Gotta go!

  2. These look great, especially at the moment when I’m trying to juggle homeschooling three kids! Such popular titles too.

    I’ve never heard of this before but it looks great. I would have loved this when i was younger. It’s a great way to keep the kids occupied as we are now all stuck indoors

  4. This looks like a great resource for expanding children’s virtual libraries, and to find new and classic stories for bedtime. Laura x

  5. This is such a great resource for both parents and children whilst they are learning from home. Audio stories are always a hit for us.
