My Audio School Review and Giveaway

My Audio School is a wonderful resource that provides audio content for children on a variety of subjects.  I was recently given the privilege of reviewing this vast website and have found that it is a great tool for homeschoolers, children, and parents alike.  The audios include classic books, old-time radio theater, and television and radio broadcasts of historic events.  When I say vast, I really mean it!  There are over 350 full-length books and over 250 radio and television broadcasts on My Audio School.





This website was originally created to help dyslexic students, but of course is still helpful (and fun!) for many others as well.  When you find a book on the site you would like to listen to, you (or your children) can download the book to Mp3, read it for free online, stream the book immediately, or listen to individual chapters according to what you have assigned to them for the day.  You can even download the book to iTunes.  And to make things even more interesting and enjoyable, Molly Evert (the creator of My Audio School), has placed appropriate artwork along with the books.

My Audio School also has other useful resources that are regularly posted, such as
Sermons about Reformers.

There are several different categories of audios available: Ancients, Middle Ages, Renaissance, Revolution, Empires, Superpowers, Science, Biographies, High School, and Everything Else.  My Audio School states regarding its Highschool resources that

"We have set a high standard when choosing books for My Audio School.  With that said, there is a wide variance in what parents choose to teach during the high school years."
so parents will still want to use their discretion for what books they deem appropriate for their family, as with anything.

Buy at Art.com


There are some free audios available, but those account for only about 20% of what is available with a paid subscription.  I especially loved the content included in the Reformation section (part of the Renaissance portion of the site).  There is such a wide variety of audios available on My Audio School--something for everyone.

My Audio School is generously giving away a full, one year membership to a Blessed Homemaking reader.  To enter, just visit the site, My Audio School and tell me which category sounds the most interesting to you and comment here that you did.  (You will notice that the large categories also have additional categories in the drop-down menu).

I would love to use the Reformation of Audio school! I love this idea! We are big believers in auditory learning because we have become such a visual culture (with computers etc.) that the brain needs auditory stimulation!
