Audiobooks

When Heather visited a couple weeks ago, her son had some audiobooks that she had purchase through itunes. I never knew they had adiobooks! After she left, i did some looking into what itunes had. They've got some great stuff. I'm so excited, because there are so many great books that i'd love to read with my kids, but just don't have the time to read them all. Now, they can listen when i'm busy, and as often as they want. So fun!

I just bought Shel Silverstien's Where the Sidewalk Ends. It's so fun, because he narrates it himself. I'll see if i can get one of them on the blog-player, later.

The kids are also in the middle of The Mouse and the Motorcycle by Beverly Cleary. That's been fun so far.

I already purchased the book, Charlotte's Web, for school this fall, but i'm afraid of turning into a mushpot when Charlotte dies, & being unable to read it. So, maybe i'll get that one as an audiobook, also.

some other audiobooks that i'd like to get for the kids are:
Pippi Longstocking
Charlie & the chocolate Factory
Peter Pan
The Narnia Saries
The Little Princess

Any other suggestions?

Totally off the subject of books on tape (but, have you heard of Jim Weiss? He does stories on cd and is incredible). Ok. We have a good friend who just swam a "tandem" swim from Santa Barbara Island to Rocky Point Beach in LA. I keep thinking of you. He will get some medal from the Santa Barbara Channel Swimming Association. Oh, they are the 1st people to ever swim that. Just thought you would find it interesting.

What about Nancy drew? Those are always fun. My kids loved the Narnia series when Chad read it to them a couple of years ago.

Hey, I'm not sure if this one's age appropriate, but my kids loved My Side of the Mountain when we read that a couple of years ago. Especially my son. It's about a boy who literally runs away and lives in the woods. Not very well known, but it did win awards.

An old friend...
