Too Many Books, Too Little Time: Adding Audio to Your Homeschool

It is ironic that the advent of the audio book online has not fully replaced printed books. Instead audio books have only highlighted the joy we get from books in general. They have become a part of our homeschool and looking back, I can’t imagine our home without them.
