Hello! Welcome to Nosy Crow Stories Aloud: picture books to make a noise about!

Nosy Crow is an award-winning publisher of multimedia apps as well as print books: we are really engaged with the evolution of children’s reading in the digital age. So we are very excited to have found a way to build great digital audio content into each of our new paperback picture books: Nosy Crow Stories Aloud.

Each book comes with a free audio reading using children’s voices, complete with sound effects and original music. Just scan the QR code with your smartphone or tablet to hear the story. Our innovative idea brings together digital listening and reading print books in a way that uses today’s technology, and that works for booksellers, for parents and for children. So, now families can listen to a story wherever and whenever they want. No messing about with CDs and wires, just pick up the phone and hear the story. It couldn’t be simpler!

  2. Scan the code on the inside front cover of each Nosy Crow paperback picture book with your smart phone or tablet.
  3. Hear the story! Once the webpage has loaded, press play to hear the story – with sound effects and original music – streamed to your phone or tablet. You need a 3G or WiFi connection to do this.
