Gulliver's Travels

Thought some of you might be interested in this...

From Homeschool Freebie of the Day comes Gulliver's Travels -

one an easy-reader pdf written by James Baldwin...

and the other is a fun audio dramatization of the story - originally broadcast on radio in 1947.
Proportedly there are many familiar "cartoon voices" portraying the 1/4" tall Lilliputians in the story.

Usually the site only has things up for one day, but this should be up until Sunday Night... though I'd not put off downloading it, if you want it!

Educator Appreciation Days

Hopefullly everyone has the Barnes and Noble Educator’s card!

It’s something that you get free at Barnes and Noble, and your purchases are always 20% off! (Text books not included.)

I’ve never had anyone ask me if particular books are for school, but since we’re unschoolers, I figure everything is legitimate, and that’s my attitude.

Anyway – their card is now a hard, plastic card, instead of the old paper one, and your card can also be used now for online purchases. And, its for two years, instead of one.

So take in something (your local home educating member card, your voucher, a lesson plan book whatever), and ask them for an educator’s card.

Educator Appreciation Days (25% off books, 10% off dvd’s and music) are online January 13-24, and in store January 16-24.

Happy browsing.

Laura Ingalls Wilder: The Long Winter

Hey everyone!
Tomorrow the featured radio show on Homeschool Freebie of the Day is a classic old-time radio adaptation of Laura Ingalls Wilder's book The Long Winter.
If you think you and your babes would enjoy it, check in there tomorrow and download the mp3. It's a half-hour show, plus there will be two more featured wintertime stories.
I'm looking forward to it!
