Right now we’re enjoying some of the audiobooks we purchased during the Audible “Kids’ Listening Sale” on Amazon. We don’t have an Audible membership, so it has been fantastic to be able to take advantage of these deals. Even better, since these are downloads, we don’t have to wait to start enjoying them.
My children definitely prefer that I read to them (which surprises me because I’m not a big fan of hearing myself read out loud). However, for times when I’m too tired to read or for long car rides, these are great! So far I’ve really been pleased with the narrators, too. Good narrators certainly help make the story exciting and engaging!
Since we are going through American history with three of our kids this year, I’m listing some of the audiobooks we’ve added (or hope to add) to our collection. If you’re using Sonlight, Heart of Dakota, My Father’s World, Ambleside Online, or any other literature-rich curriculum, you’ll probably find something on sale that’s also on your book list! (Just be aware that the sale ends on November 27.)
These are just a few of the great books they have on sale. After the list you’ll find a fun freebie I created for us to use with some of our audiobooks (as well as our “regular” books)!
(For the sleep deprived, make sure you click the “Buy with 1-Click” button, not the “Free with Audible Trial” button. Using the “Buy with 1-Click” button allows you to purchase without committing to a membership.) 🙂

I created a little activity pack for my nine and seven-year-old to expand their imaginative play time after listening to (or reading) a book. We wanted to share it with our readers as well! Right now we have one with a Thanksgiving theme (and a second Thanksgiving-themed pack with fewer floral designs). If you are visiting after Thanksgiving, I’ve also got one with a non-seasonal theme! If you choose to share, please remember to link directly to this blog and not the file itself, and please remember to give proper credit! 🙂
Last but not least, it’s time for another giveaway! Since we are featuring audiobooks in this post, we want to give away a set of Adventures in Odyssey CDs! We’re giving away one Adventures in Odyssey: Countdown to Christmas Advent Collection. Check out our Facebook page to enter.
