Adorable Children's Stories Download Site!

We bought our 2 oldest boys mp3 players for Christmas this year, and ever since then I jump on any FREE mp3 download I think they might like. (Like this cute Iggy and His Wiggy Bed chapter story HERE)

But when I went searching today for more good stories, I found this site and I am over the moon about it!!  It's called Kiddie Records Weekly and it's where folks have recorded old story records (the kind that come with little books)  and made them available in mp3 format for FREE Downloading!!!

 Just to give you an idea at the caliber of recordings available to delight your children, I'm listening to the 1939 recording of Peter & The Wolf right now with Peter Hale and the Boston Symphony Orchestra, I can even hear the sounds of old vinyl!  This brings back the best memories for me of kindergarten music class....

Other titles I'm getting so happy(!) to see:

 Casey at the Bat (Narrated by Lionel Barrymore)
The Adventures of the Lone Ranger  (1951)
Ichabod & Mr. Toad (1949)
Madeline (Old, no date)
The Story of Robin Hood
Rocket to the Moon (and other 50's era space adventure tales)
The 12 Dancing Princesses
Grimms Fairy Tales
Jack and the Beanstalk
The Little Red Hen
and MANY more...

I know that's a bit off-topic from my normal posts, but it made me so happy and I hope you find something to make you smile today too!
