Recordings of Books on the Ambleside List

Introduction Listeners have requested a list of LibriVox recordings of books recommended by Ambleside Online for use with homeschooling. Anyone looking for audio books for children will find plenty of ideas on this page. This is the first part, covering years 0 - 4. The second part, covering Years 5 - 8, may be found here. The lists here only include books on the main booklists on Ambleside Online, not the various personal recommendations. Please note that many books on the Ambleside list are not in the Public Domain, and are therefore not available to record for LibriVox. Ambleside Online has modernised versions of the original Charlotte Mason books on which the homeschooling programme is based.

In fact it’s one of the very few traditional fairy tales with a Christmas theme. A poor shoemaker receives some unexpected help just when he needs it most. When it is close to Christmas he and his wife decided to give a gift in return. By the Brother’s Grimm. Read by Natasha. Proofread by Claire Deakin. A shoemaker, by no fault of his own, became so poor that at last he had nothing left but enough leather for one pair of shoes. In the morning, just as he was about to sit down to work, he saw the two shoes standing quite finished on his table. Soon after, a customer came in to the shop, and as the shoes pleased him so well, he paid more than the usual price. The Gift of the Magi - LibriVox.

This Musical Christmas Double brings you the story and the song together so that you can compare the two. Listen out for the beautiful rendition of the carol sung at the end of the story by Gabriella Burnel with Jamie McCredie on the guitar. And the story is told by our very own Natasha. You can read Natasha’s reflections on this special Christmas story in her Post Recording Review. Proofread by Claire Deakin. A bit of history… King Wenceslas (or Wenceslaus) was the Duke of Bohemia in the years 921-935. The episode in our story involving the pagan woman is a bit fanciful, by the way, and not history – although it was a time of conflict between Christians and Pagans. A Christmas Carol - LibriVox.

Nicholas. The classic Christmas poem by Clement Clarke Moore, is also known as “The Night Before Christmas”. You will hear that Santa hasn’t changed a great deal since the poem was written in 1822, expect that he seemed to be ‘miniature’ back then, and he did not yet have a reindeer called Rudolf, though he did have Dasher, Dancer, Prancer and Vixen. Read by Natasha Duration 5.15 Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. The children were nestled all snug in their beds, While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads. 7,000+ Free Audio Books & eBook Downloads - Loyal Books.
