Introduction

Listeners have requested a list of LibriVox recordings of books recommended by Ambleside Online for use with homeschooling. Anyone looking for audio books for children will find plenty of ideas on this page.

This is the first part, covering years 0 - 4. The second part, covering Years 5 - 8, may be found here. The third part, covering Year 9, is here. The fourth part, covering Year 10, is here. The fifth part, covering Year 11, is here.

The lists here only include books on the main booklists on Ambleside Online, not the various personal recommendations. If you would like to browse all LibriVox recordings of books, stories and poems for children, please follow this link for fiction and this link for non-fiction.

Please note that many books on the Ambleside list are not in the Public Domain, and are therefore not available to record for LibriVox.

Ambleside Online has modernised versions of the original Charlotte Mason books on which the homeschooling programme is based. These are not in the public domain, and therefore not available for recording at LibriVox. Three of the original books of the Home Education Series are now available online, however:

Vol. I Home Education (1906)

Vol. II Parents and Children (1904)

Vol. III School Education(1906)

I have been unsuccessful at finding the other volumes available online worldwide.

Also available: Home education: a course of lectures to ladies, delivered in Bradford, in the winter of 1885-1886 (1886)
