Dial-a-story

I’m recording some books on CD for our school.

It (and another mom in the schoolyard) reminded me that the Metro Toronto Public Library has a wonderful service. It’s Dial-a-Story, and all you have to do is phone a number — and let your child listen.

Every day there is a new story for little kids and older kids.

Stories are available in English, French, Italian, Portuguese, Mandarin, Cantonese, Spanish, Polish and “other languages.” Currently, you can also hear a story geared to black history month.

Even if you’re not in Toronto, give it a try.

This is the cool microphone my husband bought me to record the books on CD. I want to burst into song (and sometimes, I do).
Thanks, Kerry, for clarifying that new stories are posted every day (previously, this post said they changed every week). BTW, the “other mom”? Kerry!
