The Jim Dale version of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

(my favorite line: "Have some wine," the march hare said in an encouraging tone.)


The Family Theatre Radio Shows are great abridged audio books.  All three of my kids enjoyed Little Women even though the boys wouldn't admit it.  That was a great intro to LW, which is so long.

My kids are 15, 13, and 8.  We are working our way through the Little House books, but occasionally we have to wait on one from the library, so we've added others.


Johnny Tremain

Carry On, Mr. Bowditch

The Great Trouble: A Mystery of London, the Blue Death and a Boy Called Eel

Jefferson Son's


We're a history bunch if you can't tell.  :laugh:

I found The Lightning Thief audio book on my library's Overdrive app, so we are going to start there. Mr. Twain thinks it will be both entertaining and educational.


Please keep making suggestions if anyone has more ideas. We will work through this list for the next couple of years. :)
