StoryPhones aims to provide everyone with a comprehensive overview of new resources, ideas and events in the world of audio.
The StoryPhones Education Team works closely with publishers and content providers to bring wonderful and unique audio resources to the BookShelf download store. They also carry out research to find the best sources of free audio resources and talk to various organisations closely associated with audio content.
All of this information is shared in the customer sections opposite. To access these pages you will need your StoryPhones Bookshelf software username and password.

You will find lots of suggestions for different ways you can use your StoryPhones systems and Little Listeners on this page. Many of the ideas for using StoryPhones come from schools, nurseries, preschools and playgroups who are using their StoryPhones systems in a wide range of creative ways to support their children's learning. You can contribute your ideas and join in with discussions via our blog.
Here you will find free audio resources to download including an Animal Sounds Game, an Animal Who Am I? Game, nursery rhymes and our Listening Song and supporting resources.
