This website offers a treasure trove of recorded children’s stories and literature from the 1940’s and 1950’s that you can download or listen to for free online, as you browse the books with original illustrations!

Kiddie Records began as a year-long project to celebrate the golden age of children’s records by offering a story each week. The project lasted through 2009 and now, the stories are all archived online. As explained at the website, “Many of the recordings were extravagant Hollywood productions on major record labels and featured big time celebrities and composers.”

May 9th is the birthday of Sir James Matthew Barrie, author of Peter Pan. Barrie was born in 1860. We thought an exploration of history and social sciences while commemorating the author’s life and his most famous work would be fun! There are several sites that have interesting facts and features which turns this particular ClickSchooling recommendation into a sort of unit study.
