A couple weeks ago I posted about our favorite “listening reads”. I was so happy to find in the comment section a list of some of your favorite listening reads. I have to admit that I hadn’t heard of some of theses choices but the suspense was killing me so I went out and found them, checked them out from the library, and we had many happy moments of listening while we were crafting and such.
Rain: Love the Little House on the Prairie books on CD.
Janelle: Her family has greatly enjoyed Frog and Toad are Friends by Arnold Lobel.
Amanda: Came through with a new book series for us which we’ve become a bit addicted to. The Akimbo books by Alexander McHall are fabulous.
Amy@ Hope is a Word: Is also listening to Alexander McHall but his Max and Maddy series.
Jennifer V: Insists that not only is Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo, a must read but a “must listen-to” as well. It’s a fantastic book in any form isn’t it?
Pom-Pom: Brought back an incredible memory of All of a Kind Family. There are several books in the series but I have never listened to them on audio recording. They are now sitting on our listening shelf ready to be heard.
Thank you so much friends for sharing these great finds with us.
There is one more listening site that we’ve recently discovered My Audio School. It’s really an incredible place with many many things to listen to. Molly Evert, is a homeschooling mom to five children, who range in age from infant through high school. She started her website My Audio School when one of her children was diagnosed with dyslexia. She helped her child progress in his reading comprehension by listening to audio material. She sought an alternative to high priced audio books, began searching for public domain audio books to meet his ever growing needs.
From Molly’s Website:
“My Audio School offers children safe and easy access to classic audio books, interesting educational old time radio drama, kid’s art podcasts, television and radio broadcasts of historic events and much more. My Audio School is a treasure trove for the classical educator, with almost 600 distinct audio resources currently available for subscribers, including over 350 full-length downloadable audio books. Easy to use, organized by historical time period, and thoughtfully illustrated, My Audio School is a bargain at just $14.99 for a full year subscription!”
She also has some free downloads to let you get a feel for their productions. We are really enjoying these. My son loves history and he just cannot get enough of these portrayals and books. Please pass by and have a look.
Disclosure: As with everything on Jump into a Book, we have purchased our subscription and are not being asked by Molly or anyone to give this opinion. We are not receiving any reinbursement what so ever. We are just sharing what we actually use and like.
I hope you enjoy some of these listening reads to fill out your last days of summer.
