Audio stories for children

I am still finding reading aloud a bit challenging so the children are listening to more audio stories.

Light Up Your Brain has a few good’uns as does Story Nory, but the place the children seem to like best at the moment is Readings from Under the Grapevine at Ancient Faith Radio. You may remember that Dr Chrissie Hart had read the Narnia books, which are still available. She has a good reading voice and there’s the added joy of not having to check the stories are suitable.

I wish EWTN did something similar.

Books Should Be Free has a lot of Librivox recordings but you’ll need to listen a bit first. Some are really well read and some are just awful – poor sound quality and grating voices.  You will find some gems there though.

And of course there’s always Strega Nona

And perhaps this little story might be added. Tikki Tikki Tembo – a folktale from China
