“Listen with Your Kids Month” Continues: Maguire and Pooh downloads


The inaugural NEA/Audible “Listen with You Kids Month” continues.  You can still get the free download of Random House/Listening Library’s “List to the List”, audio excerpts from Newbery Award-winners.  Additionally, we’ve got a couple of great selections through to the end of the month.

Tomorrow we’re going to put up “Goldifox and the Three Chickens”. This is one of the “fractured fairy tales” from Gregory Maguire’s Leaping Beauty. Maguire is the author of Wicked, and this collection of off-beat takes on traditional fairy tales is fast becoming a classic.

On Tuesday, 3/27, we’ll put up our finale:  “In Which Pooh Goes Visiting and Gets into a Tight Place”.  This story is from the first volume of Winnie-the-Pooh: A.A. Milne’s Pooh Classics.

Also, last week we added an information page about listening with your kids.  It has recommendations for ways to listen with your child, as well as some literacy research information on the benefits of audio in developing literacy skills.  You can find it from the LWYK homepage (link below) or you can click through directly here.

So stop by and pick up these great free downloads and spend some time listening with your kids.  (And spread the word to any parents or teachers that might be interested!)
