Mastodon —

I’m always on the lookout for wonderful public domain children’s literature. A while ago I discovered The Baldwin Online Children’s Literature Project:

They have a great collection of classic children’s literature, all laid out for you to read online AND you can buy lovely inexpensive reprints of their books. I recorded Our Island Story from their site as a solo project (audio here: part 1 and here: part 2), and I’ve just recently started The Story of the Middle Ages. I emailed Lisa, who runs the site, thanked her for providing the texts, and invited her to link to any of our free audio versions of the books on her site. She very kindly offered to send me a print copy of any of her books, to make it easier to record them! So I asked for the Story of the Middle Ages and it arrived today. It’s a beautiful softcover facsimile of the original book, about 6×9, with all the original illustrations.

Thank you so much, Lisa, for your generous gift! It will indeed make it easier and more fun to do my recording :) Reading from a screen is ok, but there’s just nothing like a real book.

Please support — buy a book and help them keep scanning in these literary treasures.
