I do love the librivox website. Many, many of the books we use are available as free audio downloads there. From the amble ramble group that I'm on I learned that librivox also has an iPod/iPhone app. It is called Audiobooks. I just type in the name of the book and it automatically plays so that we can all listen to our books anywhere.
This week we've been working on sewing projects and have listened to several great books during that time. If you haven't read/listened to The Five Little Peppers and How They Grew, you really should. It is such a heart warming story. We also listened to The Princess and the Goblins as well as The Heroes by Charles Kingsley. Other greats from that site are Heidi, Otto the Silver Hand, and many more.
So if your voice could use a break and you have an iPhone or iPod, download the audiobooks apps. You'll be glad you did.
I am mama to 5 sweet and busy children ages 4-19. I currently am teaching 1, 7th, and 9th grades using Tapestry of Grace with swirls of Charlotte Mason elements throughout. When I'm not teaching, I'm chasing my 4 year old, or climbing Mount Washmore, or spending way too much time on Pinterest and not nearly enough time cleaning house or doing laundry.
