Find stories you love - from fairytales, myths & legends to modern classics, including TELL Originals: the greatest stories ever told. The classic stories are fabulous reading and have inspired us to re-interpret them to reflect our changing world. We’ve rewritten and recorded hundreds of stories for families to enjoy, updating them for today’s generation of kids while preserving their timeless charm. Stories old and new not only continue to be fabulous entertainment but also a fantastic way to pass on history, tradition & values - TELL is the world’s storytelling platform.
Are your little ones gathered and you simply need audio stories for kids to keep them entertained? Or to help them fall asleep? Play the stories on your phone or connect the app to any bluetooth speaker and even in your car.

Each story on TELL has its own audio track, but the real beauty comes in narrating your own. TELL makes everyone a storyteller!
Think of it like a place to record your own audiobooks. If you’re away from home or living apart from your children or grandchildren, TELL ensures they don’t miss out on a bedtime story. If you enjoy writing children’s stories, TELL helps you share them. For those with elderly relatives, it’s a lovely way to preserve their memories and life lessons.
Simply choose a story and read the text into the app. Your voice is recorded in small chapters, ensuring a simple slip of the tongue doesn’t undo a few minutes of perfect diction.

Custom stories on TELL provide a blank canvas for your own creativity - from kids inventing a story or recording a book review to Parents preserving their family history and keeping it safe for the next generation to enjoy. Let your imagination run free! Start a podcast!
TELL allows you to easily enhance your stories by adding imagery to your narration, such as family photographs, or pictures from your phone.

TELL makes it fun to share your stories, whether that’s privately with family and friends or publicly with other storytellers, if you so choose. This means there’s always more stories and amazing narrators to discover, and stories to listen to, like, comment, bookmark and re-share!

Really easy to use

Finished my first book in no time! Was really say to use. Loved the ability to listen to my recording before moving forward to next page! We all make mistakes, but I could catch them before it was permanent. Will be trying my own books, with uploading photos, etc. but can already tell this is going to be great! Thank you!
