The Little House series by Laura Ingalls Wilder, narrated by the amazing and talented Cherry Jones, is now available on Audible.
We can all agree that these books make up what is possibly the best children’s series ever written, right?
Here’s the thing, though…. I don’t really enjoy reading them aloud. I think it might have something to do with the first time I tried reading them to my girls.
They were all of about 5 and 3 at the time, and as I’ve said before– you’ve got to ease into longer narrative with little ones.
Then I heard Cherry Jones read the entire series.
These are truly some of the very best audio books I’ve ever heard- our family has listened to Cherry Jones read the entire series multiple times. (Even my husband loves listening, and he’s not into audio books.)
Until now, the Little House books have only been available on CD. But not anymore! Now you can get them all on Audible, which makes them so much more accessible and convenient.
These books are excellent for all ages. I know that sounds audacious, but just try one and see! Your 3- and 4-year olds will likely listen as rapturously as your teens! It’s kind of miraculous.
