Smories is a video site featuring kids reading kids’ stories. The stories are written by various authors who contribute to the site. The videos feature kids reading those stories contributed to the site and some classic stories and poems. Many of the videos include captions. The directions for submitting videos are a little unclear, but it seems that anyone can submit a video and videos are vetted before being posted on Smories.
I learned about Smories from one of Russell Stannard’s recent videos.

The idea behind Smories is to provide children with a place to see other children reading stories and be inspired to practice reading aloud. Smories provides a forum for writers to share their stories and get some informal feedback when they’re posted on the site.
