Listen My Children…

Listen My Children (MP3 Audio)

Paul Revere, famous American revolution patriot, is most remembered today for his night-time ride sounding the alert before the battles of Lexington and Concord. His famous “Midnight ride” took place on the night of April 18, 1775. William Dawes and Revere were instructed by Dr. Joseph Warren to ride from Boston to Lexington to warn John Hancock and Samuel Adams of the movements of the British Army. Listen My Children is a great half hour audio story about Revere’s life and influence, including the events of that fateful night, as originally dramatized on the radio program “Cavalcade of America”, in December, 1952.

More great "Living Books for the Ears" for you as we continue our Audio Adventure Week postings! (Psstt… If you like these stories and want more, be sure to click here!)

BROTHER AND SISTER – Let's Pretend specialized in dramatizing classic fairy and folk tales for younger listeners. We think their version of the eastern European fairy tale "Brother and Sister" (included in Grimm's Fairy Tales) is one of their best! Give it a listen and see if you think so too!


PINOCCHIO – A delightful audio version of Collodi’s classic story, “Pinocchio”, starring none other than Mel Blanc (voice of Bugs Bunny and countless other cartoon characters). This is a fast, fun and highly entertaining version of the story, as originally broadcast on the program “Family Theatre” back in 1951. Wonderful stuff!
