World Stories is a growing collection of short stories. The stories, traditional tales retold, and new short stories from around the world, are available in the 21 languages most spoken by UK children. Stories can be read, listened to, and downloaded in English and their original language. The project is run for families and schools by the KidsOut charity, and is funded by Esmee Fairbairn and the National Lottery – to support language skills, encourage cultural awareness, and to inspire children’s creativity. A Story Map pinpoints stories’ origins, and Your World lets children showcase and celebrate their writing and artwork.
