It is called Storybook Railroad and it is a free podcast for children with “audible illustrations” that has become a hit with families of young children, visually impaired children, autistic children, and even a few Grandmas and Grandpas. The podcast is one of the most delightful storytelling experiences you will find for the young and the young-at-heart and it is right on your phone.
From the creators of Robin And The Giant, Robin MacBlane and Larry Whitler write and produce each episode complete with a blend of sound effects, music, and good old-fashioned storytelling. The result is audio magic. The “theatre of the mind” produces brilliant mental illustrations from the narration and the combination of music and sound effects.
Plus, in addition to the stories, the series includes bonus episodes the duo calls “Field Trips” that take the listener along for the ride as the hosts visit a concert, a paddle boat tour, and even The Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World.
Storybook Railroad is a completely free service and is available on Apple Podcasts, I-Heart Radio, Stitcher, and www.StorybookRailroad.com. Be sure to check it out.
