    Hi everyone! As we all know, it is not always easy to find time to read to your child especially if he has a favorite story and wants to hear it ten times a day. Giving audio books is the perfect solution as the child has fun and is also able to follow the story of the book by listening to the cd. Booksshouldbefree.com offers a good selection of children's book, but there are many other sites where you can find cheap or even free books. Enjoy!

    This is a cool share! Thank you so much Konstantina. It is amazing the quality of free or even low priced e-books one can get. When one takes the expense of paper printing out of the equation, awesome things happen. I personally love audio and I plan on taking this resource to a Shawco underprivileged preschool that I know of.

    I am sure the kids will love it and the volunteer teachers will appreciate it...

    Thank you very much. :eek:

    Here's a web site that you might like:

    They have over 200 audio stories in MP3 format for you to download and enjoy with your family and friends

    I often listen to audio books that range from the Classics to Adventure stories - and even Sherlock Holmes! It is quite relaxing! Try it!

    Do you have to have an e-reader for these sites to work? I have a basic Nook, no color and I would love to share it with my daughter, but most of the books available are only for the Nook color. I would love to get her one eventually...

    I think that audio books are the greatest, my little girl loves to get her auto books before going to bed. I recently went to the book store and purchased her a audio book with the pop up and the puppets included in it, I have to say I was really impressed by the author and the book , I'm gonna continue to by these books , I thought I was gonna have to buy her a tablet like mine , but this audio book saved me alot of money .

    Thanks everyone for the links, I think audio books with stories for kids are amazing ideas, I have CDs with songs and kids love them so I imagine that stories are even more captivating! I don't understand how they manage to offer this books for free, what do they earn? It's a great share, thanks again!
