External Links


Neither Leon nor Leonsplanet.com will fully endorse any of the following websites.  Parents beware:  Gone are the days of non-political, non-in-your-face-agendas.  You, the user, must fully vet the websites and their content.  I have checked the websites to see if they work and meet my standards, but things change; politics change, agendas change, websites change.  I like "Free" (and that usually means free with advertising, but not always; sometimes free of charges is also free of ads); and if there are ads, that means you, the parent, have to watch your child and make sure he/she is not clicking on strange ads, etc.  Also, if you do not like the agendas being "pushed" on your child, please do not use that website.  I am unapologetically conservative, and I fully believe in parental rights.  Herein-below, I have listed reasons that I cannot fully endorse any other website these days, but I provide the list of links as possible resources for homeschooling parents/children.  If you find a broken link or a website that you disagree with for any reason, please feel free to contact me.

of external links posted on this site...

1 Sometimes links go bad.
2 Sometimes what was once "free" changes without my knowledge to no-longer free. (I try to remove those links).  [I do not purposefully link to subscription-based websites, unless I know that they are free of charge and they hold my information private.].
3 Political agendas of websites change over time (without my knowledge).  When I find out something goes awry, I remove those links.
4 I cannot vet every single book, video, or activity posted on other websites.  I do not have the time.  Parents need to (now more than ever) be aware of what their child is "getting into" on the web.  Basically, I've done my best to vet these websites, but use at your own risk.  I shall not be held accountable.

(1) Storynory
REVIEW: These are audio files.  You can follow along while they read, but it is not in book format; it is just text format.
(2) "Free Children's Stories"
 brought to you by Freechildrenstories.com, Daniel Errico, Soaring Ship, LLC.
REVIEW: Free with ads.  There are tons of ads, which I'm okay with, because they need to make money somehow, but you've got to watch your child, to make sure they aren't clicking on ads that you don't approve of.  The great thing about this website is that the child can read along with the reader.
(3) "International Children's Digital Library"
 brought to you by the University of Maryland.
REVIEW: THIS IS AWESOME!  It is a collection of scanned books, that the reader has to read his/herself.  It is for children of all ages.  For young children, I recommend clicking on "Books by format," then click on "Picture Books."  It's FREE with NO ads!
"Storyline Online"
 brought to you by SAG-AFTRA Foundation.

Celebrities read stories to kids.  I cannot vet all of those celebrities.  I don't even know half of them.  Even if I did know the celebrity, I might not be familiar with their politics.  But, it is free and has no ads that I'm aware of (as of 5/15/22).

Here is the description from their own website:

The SAG-AFTRA Foundation’s Daytime Emmy®-nominated and award-winning children’s literacy website, Storyline Online®, streams videos featuring celebrated actors reading children’s books alongside creatively produced illustrations. Readers include Oprah Winfrey, Chris Pine, Kristen Bell, Rita Moreno, Viola Davis, Jaime Camil, Kevin Costner, Lily Tomlin, Sarah Silverman, Betty White, Wanda Sykes and dozens more.

Reading aloud to children has been shown to improve reading, writing and communication skills, logical thinking and concentration, and general academic aptitude, as well as inspire a lifelong love of reading. Teachers use Storyline Online in their classrooms, and doctors and nurses play Storyline Online in children’s hospitals.

Storyline Online is available 24 hours a day for children, parents, caregivers and educators worldwide. Each book includes supplemental curriculum developed by a credentialed elementary educator, aiming to strengthen comprehension and verbal and written skills for English-language learners.

Storyline Online is a program of the SAG-AFTRA Foundation. The Foundation is a nonprofit organization that relies entirely on gifts, grants and donations to fund Storyline Online and produce all of its videos.
