Books on CD for a Sick Day

Ryan didn't understand when I woke up with hardly any voice this morning. Thankfully one of our his favorite books, The Dinosaur Who Lost His Roar, was lying on the floor! He says I do sound like the croaking dino, and I should drink some tea to get my roar back.

Since we read books by the dozen around here, I'm glad we've recently gotten a bunch of books on CD. We usually keep most of them in the car, but I'm sure they will come in handy today! Here are just a few of our current favorites:

In Usborne's, The Princess and the Pea Hans Christian Andersen's original fairytale is brought to life with lively music, dramatic sound effects and well characterized readings.

In author Richard Walker's retelling of another classic, Jack and the Beanstalk, we get a new look at the story, without losing any of the old world charm. Even though this story is on the longer side, it consistently keeps Ryan's attention thanks to the quirky artwork and the great sound effects that make him laugh every time.

The Barefoot Book of Animal Tales tells traditional fairytales from cultures around the world.Each of the nine animal adventures teaches an important moral, such as, the importance of community, bravery, kindness, and a sense of humor. Once again, the amazing pictures and lively story are sure to keep your little ones entertained!
