Free books for children by Better Time Stories
Refugee children from Ukraine can receive free children's books through Better Time Stories. The (listening) books connect separated families through a listening and recording function. In this way, the Better Time Stories organization hopes to offer support to children and welcome them to their new environment.
Donations allow Better Time Stories to create a gift package for a child. The package includes a bundle of five interactive picture books addressing themes of comfort, love and optimism. The books are written by Ukrainian authors. The special feature is that each book is also available as an audiobook. Family members who are left behind can use an app to speak and record the story. Children then hear the family member's voice so they can read the book together, from a distance.
All picture books and audiobooks are bilingual: in Ukrainian and in the language of the country where the children are currently living. This helps not only to get familiar with the new environment, but also to learn a new language.
As a family with temporary protection in the Netherlands, Flanders (Belgium), Germany or Austria, you can apply for a free package. After the application, Better Time Stories will start to find a donor so that a book package will be sent.
