A Pinocchio Audiobook Story

When Geppetto’s wish for a child is granted by the Blue Fairy, his puppet Pinocchio comes alive. Can Pinocchio ever be a real son? Pinocchio is a great story for discussing the consequence of lies and deceit with children. Every time Pinocchio tells a fib, his nose grows, he gives into temptation and his actions result in Geppetto being in danger. Pinocchio has to learn how to overcome these qualities and when he does, he is rewarded with his wish to be a real boy being granted. Themes of love and family are also important themes explored in our retelling of Pinocchio. The original Pinocchio was created by Carlo Collodi and appeared weekly in Giornale per i bambini, newspaper for children from 1880.

Why do we write bedtime stories for kids?

When we first decided to create a bedtime story for kids, we knew we wanted it to be fun, engaging and high quality.

We wanted Sooper Books to bring children's publishing into the 21st century. We strongly believe that nighttime stories for kids need to fit seamlessly into modern family lives which is why our free stories are all online.

It began when we started writing stories for our own family. Then our friends and wider families asked for copies and we started to share Sooper Books with other children.

At Sooper Books we write, curate and narrate stories for kids so they can enjoy the best quality content, enchanting stories and magical adventures. With our stories we work towards promoting a positive attitude to reading and instill a love of books in children from an early age.
