Would you like to build an RC audio library for your family in an affordable way? 

You don’t need an Audible subscription to access their high quality audio books. There are also other alternatives for FREE listed below.

The Robinson Curriculum is focused on each child reading independently through the RC book list, however occasions may arise where an audio book read by a skilled narrator might come in handy, such as long car rides.

Audible is a favorite place to get audio books, as they make finding and streaming audio books a simple process to buy, play, and bookmark. Other favorite audible sources however, are Recorded Books, and LibriVox. If you have a library card, you can also access a massive library of audio books through Hoopla and RB Digital.

The best way to stay posted on  current Robinson book Audible deals is to make sure you’re signed up for my email list:

When would be an appropriate time for an audio version?
Here are a  few places where we like to listen to audio books:

-During quiet time in their own bedrooms for the smaller children who can’t read while the older kids work on their independent reading.

-At the table with coloring books/drawing/legos/play dough, etc. Children tend to listen better whil doing something with their hands.

-In the car.

-On the treadmill for myself in the morning before the children wake up.

Rather than a substitute for reading independently, this is just another way to add more quality literature throughout the week.
