Audio Owl is a site that provides listings of audio book recordings that are in the public domain; that is out of copyright and freely available for anyone to download to mp3, iPod or iTunes formats. Genres include fiction, fantasy, children’s, young adult, adventure and mystery. Downloads are quick and if using iTunes are saved as podcasts.
Some titles include Anne of Green Gables, the Secret Garden, the Call of the Wild and the Getting of Wisdom.
Thanks to Richard Byrne (@rmbyrne) from Free Technology for Teachers for passing on the link to Audio Owl.
Currently downloading the Secret Garden, one of my favorite books as a child. Audio books are a fantastic way to introduce students to Classics and improve listening skills.
It’s wonderful to think such great classics of children’s literature can be downloaded for free.
