    Vocaroo is a recording site that allows you to record anything you wish and post it anywhere on the web using an embed code.
    Children can record themselves speaking or reading and then listen to themselves to check for speed, volume etc.
    Recordings on Vocaroo are stored for six months if you have an account and are logged in, or for two months if not. (This is no longer a tool I recommend because the recordings "disappear".)

    Vokis Children can choose their character, it's clothing, background etc. The site allows you to type in your text (and have an automated voice reading it) or to record your message that will be "lip synced" by the Voki.
    A student-made video about how to make a voki and add it to your blog is here.
