day 301: audio books galore!

Yesterday I challenged families to include biographies in your parenting. Obviously, reading biographies together is an intimate, life-affecting way to introduce awesome heroes to your children. However, do not overlook audio and video as avenues for learning about Christian and historical heroes.

I have a lengthy list of books, audios, and videos coming soon. (Our missionary daughter will be working on it in between Papua New Guinea and Ethiopia!) In the meantime, I wanted to give you a link to something that looks like “the best thing since sliced bread”!

At the link below (My Audio School), for a small yearly fee, you can have literally hundreds of audio downloads out your fingertips. If it is Thanksgiving, you can download Thanksgiving books. If you are focusing on diligence in your home, you can get books about godly people who exhibited diligence, such as George Washington Carver. Check out the site—browse the titles—and see if this is something that would enrich your home—and your introducing of godly and historical heroes to your kids.

  1. Audio books are our new favorite! We listen while drawing, doing puzzles, or playing legos. So glad you turned me on to this! And I had no idea that we could listen online. Since we've already gone through a lot at the library, this is really good news for us!
