It seems that more and more homeschoolers are using audiobooks. It makes sense when you think about it, especially for those of us using the Charlotte Mason Method. We read a lot of books, and we keep an ongoing list of more books that we hope to read when we have a little extra time.
Audiobooks are a great way to save time and voice. I talk with moms all the time who play a recording of a selected living book during lunch or while running errands with the kids. Other moms use audiobooks for their own benefit, listening while they exercise. And some set it up so their younger students can listen to a chapter or two while Mom is busy working with the older students.
Of course, don’t overlook the benefits of listening to an audiobook as a family during a longer car trip. A friend of mine mentioned just the other day that she had planned to take along The Swiss Family Robinson on a trip to Florida, knowing that they would get through only half of it on the ride down and could save the other half for the trip back. Well, they hit some terrible traffic conditions and ended up listening to the whole book, and they still hadn’t reached their destination. She was so thankful she had brought that audiobook along!
Outdoor Secrets as an Audiobook
And now we’re excited to offer a new audiobook that you can add to your collection! For this, our first audiobook recording, we chose one of our favorites. It also happens to be one of our best-selling books: Outdoor Secrets. This delightful collection of nature stories encourages a love for nature and plants gentle seeds of character traits at the same time.
“I ordered this book to read with my preschooler, but it delighted my 7 and 11 year old too (not to mention me). Very charming. Thank you for bringing treasures like this back to life.”—Heather
“I just finished reading this with my 6 and 3 year old. They loved as did I. The stories were very sweet and we learned some wonderful nature facts along with a few character traits.”—Rosemarie
Now you can enjoy these stories on 2 CDs or as an mp3 download read by the pleasant, articulate voice of Ruth Shafer.
“LOVE IT!!! I would get this with my girls along with the print to follow along. She reads beautifully and her voice is so pleasant to listen to. Thank you!”—delaney
