When is a Good Time for an Audio Book?

They are a great option for moms to "pre-read" or follow along. Some of these titles can occasionally be a great as a family read aloud, to listen in the car on long road trips etc. As a rule, the RC core order books should be read individually by each student and audio books can not replace a parent read aloud, but on occasion, audio books can be helpful!


Times when Audio Books are especially helpful:

  • Mom pre-reading a book

  • Mom is sick and can't read aloud or needs a break

  • Reinforce reading/listening how words are pronounced for a struggling reader as they follow long

  • Car rides 

  • Nap time or quiet time for littles

Do I need an Audible Subscription? 

Nope! You can purchase audio books on amazon and listen to them on various devices with the free audible app. If you would like to take advantage or al the benefits of an audible subscription, you can sign up here and receive two free books. 

However the deals listed below do not require a subscription. 

How do I get the best deal?

Often times the audio book price is not the best deal. If you look at the example below, you will see that by purchasing the kindle version and then upgrading to add the audible version for only .50, you not only get a MUCH better deal, but also get TWO formats!

Below are a list of our favorite book recommendations with great deals! They are categorized by age groups. Below that you will find a list of FREE audible books of many RC titles. Keep in mind, many times these free recordings are done by volunteers and sometimes purchasing a version created by a professional, might give a better listening experience. I will keep adding to the list as I find them.
