Favorite CDs

We seem to be in the car a lot and really enjoy listening to books and stories on CD. Here are some of our favorites:
  • Adventures in Odyssey - Alexandra listens to these almost daily
  • Your Story Hour - we used to listen to these quite often - I need to get them out again
  • James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl - Alexandra has listened to this CD many times
  • Classic Stories for a Girl's Heart: Focus on the Family Radio Theatre - 3 CDs - Anne of Green Gables, Little Women, and Anne of Green Gables - Alexandra got these for Christmas and they are WONDERFUL! (though they are theatre, and not readings of the books)
  • Jim Weiss CDs - Alexandra went to bed nightly with these for several years, but now she usually chooses Adventures in Odyssey - maybe I should buy some new ones

That's all that I can think of right now. I'm really interested in finding some more stories that we would enjoy. What are your favorite CDS - either books or stories? Thanks!

Junie B Jones never fails to provide some belly laughs. Laura Quintol is an amazing reader.

Personally I love Jim Dale's Harry Potters... He's in Guiness for doing over 200 voices on a single recording and won numerous Grammys for them.

The Narnia series is really good,too.

You can get free MP3 stories off the web from Kiddie Records Weekly and on Itunes Storynory.

Yes the timer really says 5am... I am getting ready to go to Cincinnati to the homeschooling convention. Jessie Wise & Jim Weiss here I come!

GB really likes to listen to the Harry Potter books on audio because they are really long, intimidating books to read, but very easy to listen to. Plus, that way you get more details than the movies provide.
