Over 2000 audio books for FREE!

My kids listen to stories on their cd player every night to go to sleep.  They have listened to "Jesus Stories" from CD's that we found at the Dollar Tree several years ago, Disney stories, Dr. Seuss, Froggy stories and many many more!  They love listening to the stories and we love that they are hearing great books and stories nightly.  The problem is that they have now listened to their stories so much that they have most of them memorized.  So I am thrilled to find this site from University of Florida with tons of classics for FREE!  (Aesops Fables, Tales of Peter Rabbit, Count of Monte Cristo......)
