Read by Rhonda


Every week I read a short work of children’s literature: a story, poem, or novel chapter, and you can listen if you want, I guess.

Read by Rhonda is a free resource for kids, parents, educators, and anyone who loves a great, classic kids’ story. As a former preschool teacher, I understand how important it is for kids to discover a love of reading and explore the world through stories. Whether on a long car ride, or at nap or bedtime, this is a podcast that parents and teachers can listen to with their children, and help them discover some classic children’s literature in the process.

From classic novels, to fairy tales and children’s stories, to favorite poems, you’ll find some of the most beloved literature Read by Rhonda. The podcast is available on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, and right here.
