A Tom Thumb Audiobook Story

Who knew someone as small as a thumb could have such a big adventure? Will Thumbelina ever make it home? Tom Thumb’s adventure is great for helping children explore ideas of embracing uniqueness and overcoming obstacles in life. Even though Tom feels different to others, he is loved unconditionally by his parents, curious of the world around him and courageous in the face of adversity. Other themes to explore in our retelling of Tom Thumb include curiosity, adventure and resourcefulness. It is believed that Tom Thumb was the first fairy tale to be written in English, tracing back to the 17th Century.

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.
