Can I just say a few words about Librivox? It has become one of my favorite resourses on the internet! I can download many books on the Ambleside Online Curriculum for ds. This is very helpful since his reading level isn't anywhere near his comprehension level! Did I mention it saves my voice? I don't really like reading out loud. I love the stories, but my voice just can't handle reading EVERYTHING to ds. Here are some of the gems I've found there for this year.

Age of Fable

Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens

Kim by Rudyard Kipling

Lamb's Shakespeare Tales

Fairyland of Science

The Boy's Life of Mark Twain (Our substitution)
