Information about CBeebies Stories

Summary

Watch and listen as the CBeebies presenters tell a story. Often retelling traditional stories and fairytales, the presenters read aloud from a picture book. Children can sit back and listen as well as follow the pictures on screen. Enjoying being read to, talking about books, reading stories and becoming familiar with them creates enthusiasm and interest that is likely to stay with children. It will then make them want to recreate the pleasure and fun for themselves.

Educational Benefits

CBeebies Stories helps children to:

  • Learn how to follow a narrative and recognise different characters.
  • Find out about different cultures beyond their own.
  • Learn to identify with different characters and experience different emotions.
