    Very imaginative and just the right length!
    My 5 year old daughter LOVES this podcast! It’s just long enough for a bedtime story or to listen to on our drive to school. So many different types of stories that includes both boys and girls doing all kinds of cool things. We look forward to our time with Short stories for kids with our host Lucy! Our story idea is Clara (Claire-uh) overcoming the evil butterflies with the help of her little brother James!

    Nora the mermaid fights an evil sea monster
    Nora the mermaid has a magical hair clip called a mercomb. The mercomb can make lively sounds, summon other mermaids instantly and heal ocean creatures. The mercomb also has the power to destroy and Nora works hard to protect it from evil creatures who want to use it for bad. The evil sea monster is trying to tear apart the whole ocean and he is trying to get her mercomb.

    Bedtime stories
    We love to listen to this podcast when I don’t have time to read a story to the kids. We will all lay down together, in the dark, and relax as we listen to the fun adventures. My 3 year old son, Logan, will always fall asleep to your voice and says you have a “kind voice.” We love that the stories are individualized toward the listeners. We also love the big vocabulary used in the stories. My 7 year old daughter, Lydia, had a story idea she hoped you could feature on your show. She wants a story that includes her and her brother (Lydia and Logan). Logan loves T-Rex and dragons, Lydia loves unicorns and fairies. She was hoping that you could create a story with them and their favorite characters. The twist is that the fairy can turn into a mermaid. We are excited to see what you come up with. Thank you again for the fun stories.

    WE ❤️ Short Stories for Kids!
    Everyday on the way to school, we listen to SSFK! We usually get about 2 stories in a day! We talk about the stories, learn new words, and use our imaginations! Amira (Ah-meer-ah), my daughter is 4, and my son Atlas, is 1! They would love a story about 4 little bears (daddy bear, mommy bear, sister bear, and brother bear). At home we tell make up stories about how the bears go into the woods to search for honey because brother bear ate it all. When they get through the magical forest and find the bee hive, the army of bees protect the honey! The only way to get honey is if you ask the bees to see the queen and ask nicely for the honey. If you don’t ask nicely or try to get the honey yourself, the bees will sting you! Usually the queen says yes ❤️ Sending our love from Athens, Georgia!

    Family Fun
    So happy we found this podcast. We listen to this EVERY moment we have in the car. I enjoy it as well since it’s not repetitive kids songs. We look forward to each new story. We would love to hear a story about Robots walking our big dogs Hudson and Hailee on a Turkey Trot 5K walk. - Carter and Tanner from California

    Half of the podcast is nothing but advertisements
    I quit listening about three minutes in because it was all nothing but plugs for products and podcasts I can do without. Get to the point already. Would not recommend.

    Terrible podcast

    We LOVE this podcast all the way from StL, USA
    My 3 kids, husband, and I love listening to this podcast in the car! All 3 of the kiddos love the stories! Ages 3, 4, 7. Henry has been wanting to give an idea for another story for a while, so here is his idea! Henry (7 years old, first grade) and his friend Shannon (same age and grade), are at a baseball game (go Cardinals!) when they run into Super Mario! There is a robot up at bat, who is the best batter in the world, and the Cardinals are losing the World Series because of this robot. Henry, Shannon and Mario must find a way to stop the robot from getting another home run! Thanks for taking the time to read our review and consider our story! We look forward to hearing another new story tomorrow!

    Such a treat! (Story idea from my girls)
    My kiddos love this podcast. We listen to it on the way to school every morning. We’ve been podcast listeners forever a long time, but we will quickly tell you this is one of the best podcasts for kids there is. Here’s our story idea: Willa and Ruby go camping on the moon (they actually witness Robbie the trampolinist’s highest jump while there). While camping, they make an important discovery involving super juicy purple moon radishes.

    Halloween story idea! We love STFK!!!
    Hi Lucy, My children, Anya (5) and PJ (3) from Vermont, USA just absolutely LOVE your stories. They want to listen basically any time we’re in the car or spending quiet time at home. Their Halloween idea was this and they would go nuts if you came up with a story about it!! - They want to go on an adventure with a “really, really big, huge Jack-o-lantern that lights up very bright!” And PJ would like to add a “ghost tooth” to the adventure. Please tell our story! It would just make these kiddos so very happy!! Thank you for all that you do!!

    My son loves these stories!!
    We love your stories!! My almost 6 year old son Robert and I listen to these stories every night at bedtime!! Robert would love a story about different LEGO sets and a bad scientist who makes them disappear and a good scientist who makes them reappear. He also asks that there be a lego shark and megladon robot shark in the story. Thank you!! 😃♥️ ATTENTION!!!! I wrote this review a long time ago, and my son is super bummed because he never heard his story! HIS BIRTHDAY IS OCTOBER 20th! Could you do his story for his birthday?? Thank you!

    Fun, imaginative
    My sons (6 and 2) love listening to your stories! Fun, simple way to pass the time in the car. We have a Halloween idea: a witch with a pet pumpkin. The witch has never met kids before, and have some fun adventures in her encounters with children during Halloween.

    My kids listen to your podcast every evening before bed…it’s become part of our routine and a nightly tradition in our home. We’ve tried several story podcasts and this is ultimately the only one they’ll listen to. They just love it!

    Great podcast for kids
    My son Archer adores your show. He and Gracie get so excited when there are new episodes. He has been begging us to write in or send a message for a story request and busy mom and dad are finally getting to it. He requests a story with a king, a dragon, a little boy named Archer, his sister Gracie and their two dogs named Sally and Ethan (we don’t have dogs, so I think he’s telling us something haha).

    New kid at a new school story
    Hi! My name is Charlotte (4 years old). I transferred to a new school named Mundo Verde this week. I was both anxious and excited to start at a new school, and I am still in the process of settling down. Can you tell us a story about a new kid going on fun adventures with a bear, a rabbit, a squirrel and new friends from the new school?

    Tommy the School Dog is Kidnapped
    We enjoy all the stories. Penelope loves this podcast. She’d like a story about her stuffed cat, Libby being catnapped.
  • carter ried
    Kind of childish.
    What’s great about this podcast, is that all ages can listen! That can also be a problem for some people because it’s so simple! I, myself am a 9 year old, and think it’s very amusing that it’s so unrealistic, childish, and simple. All I’m saying is maybe we can update the podcast to be more mature.
  • Amck0518
