I'm pretty sure our library has a program where all you have to do is put in a request for an item and they'll stock it. The thing is, I've used it before and it can take anywhere from weeks to months to get it in - and in the end I'm looking for an entire shelf to choose from, not a specific cd to rent for two weeks. BUT, having said that, I'm sure they would be willing to at least START stocking them if I were to just ask. So I will definitely try that before getting into too much a huff. ;)

Comment:

If your library doesn't have what you want, ask for it! As a librarian in a former life (before kiddies), we always got what the public wanted unless it was out of print or impossible. So, Crystal, if your local little library doesn't have books on CD that you want, talk to the children's librarian and put in a formal request. I'm sure you're not the only parent wanting/needing that resource.

Someone else mentioned those as well. I'll have to check into it. Something tells me our library won't have them but I can always see!

Crystal - Our library has these new items called "playaways" they are books but on an ipod type mechanism. You buy ear phones (once) for $1 and listen away. Have adult and kids books. My daughters have been really enjoying these. The latest was Wizard of Oz!

Yes yes! Please check your library! And ask them if they have Playaways! Playaways are neat little MP3 players that kids can wear with headphones - the kids think they look so cool as they walk around listening to a book! When you're done, just take it back to your library!

You go girl! I love how you're encouraging your kids to read!

I just wanted to say that I just found your blog yesterday and I love it!! I was looking for burp cloth patterns and found yours and your swaddling blanket. I made 6 burp cloths last night and am heading back to the fabric store for more flannel for a blanket.
You see--I am a first time Grandma. Well, I will be in November. My girl is having a baby, and after having raised her and her 3 subsequent brothers, we are thrilled she is having a girl! We need some more femaleness in our family. :)
Anyway--I sew and (knit badly), but am enjoying being immersed back into the world of pink, ruffles, and tiny bows and buttons.

On a side note, I just want to say "Thank You" to you and your husband for the sacrifices you have made for me and the rest of our country. I sleep at night, because of husbands like yours.

Thank you for posting this. I downloaded a book for my son and he loved it. It will be great for long car trips.

The very best books are those read by loved ones...my sister has figured out a way to record her voice reading favorite childrens books. She's recorded our parents reading also...they all live far away so this is such a special treat. She sends them to me on CD's. I'm not sure how she does it, but I could find out if you would like me to. Cheers!

Do your kids ever listen to Adventures in Odessey? (sp??) I find myself tuning in to listen... I love it!

If you have an Itunes account you can search the itunes store for "children stories" there are a few free podcasts where people read stories and you can download them for free. My 3 year old nephew loves them. Storynory is one of the ones we use. the local library also has lots of CD's and tapes.

I'd not heard of audible.com, it's a bit spendy....I get CD-books for my kids at the library FOR FREE. They are a lifesaver and I love to hear the giggling from the Back Seat Peanut Gallery.

Books rock. Whether read or heard....

I love audible.com - use it all the time for books for me and have gotten a few for the kids too!

Wow, tons of great info here for moms. I discovered Audible a while back when looking for audio books in Spanish (for your dad's sponsored kids in Ecuador) -- great resource for any of us, actually :)

Btw, I just discovered your business website -- love it!

We have been fortunate enough to have some great books on tape/cd at our library ... Skippyjon some how sounds sooo much better coming from the car speakers than from me! Best of all ... it's free!
