Who loved those “Read Along” books and cassettes from way-back? I know I did. I had a whole box full of them and a bunch of them were “Star Wars” related, I mean I definitely had Return of the Jedi, but then there was like “Planet of the Hoojib’s” and some other stuff you’ve never heard of before. These were great, you’d turn the page when you heard R2-D2 make some noise. Here is the digital version of what we used to listen to. You can also head over HERE for many others available for download.
Speaking of Online Stories, there is a site http://www.storylineonline.net or click HERE where you can listen to stories read online by famous people, you can skip the Al Gore if you are so inclined, but you can hear Screen Actors Guild members Robert Guillaume, Jason Alexander or Melissa Gilbert among many others read children’s stories online. Each book also includes activities and lesson ideas if you’re teaching something.
