Phone-a-Story: More than just listening!

Phone-a-Story isn’t just about listening; it's about interactive and creative engagement. Here's how different users are making the most out of this service:

  • Personalized Requests by dialing 0: Children can now hear stories about their favorite subjects—be it dinosaurs, komodo dragons, or popular cartoons. This personal touch makes storytime extra special for young listeners.
  • Educational Quizzes: Teachers use Phone-a-Story to enhance language skills in both English and Spanish. They assign students to listen to stories and then answer questions or complete tasks like writing or drawing prompts that encourage deeper engagement with the content.
  • Family Routines: Many families incorporate Phone-a-Story into their daily or weekly routines. Whether it’s a post-school drive or a pre-bedtime wind-down, these stories become a regular bonding activity.
  • Creative Challenges: Some families play with the format by listening to just the title of a story, making predictions, and then crafting their own endings after a partial listen. This encourages creativity and critical thinking among young listeners.
