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 third part, covering years 9 - 11. The first part, covering years 0 - 4, may be found here. The second part, covering Years 5 - 8, may be found 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.

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