20 Favorite Podcasts for Children

My kids LOVE listening to stories while eating meals, coloring, or building with legos. Podcasts are one of our favorite free ways to listen to stories. 

I stream all of these on Spotify and cast them to our Bluetooth speaker in the center of the table or play them in the car. They can all be found on other platforms as well.
