Librivox is an amazing organization, and I just want to say thank you to the thousands of volunteers who make it possible!

In case you haven’t heard of Librivox, it is a website with thousands of free audiobooks. They are all older books whose copyrights have expired (and I just love older books). All of the books are narrated by volunteers, so the quality of a reader or recording can vary greatly, but some of the readers beat the professional narrators I’ve heard on Audible!

The only downside to Librivox is that if you aren’t sure what you are looking for, it can be hard to find things.

So, I’ve put together this list of some of the best Librivox books for younger kids–specifically for preschoolers to early elementary school kids (I’ll write a separate post later for books for older kids).

I love all of Thornton W. Burgess’s books, but the one’s narrated by John Lieder will keep me enthralled right along with my kids! There are many more Burgess books than the one’s I’ve listed below, but these are the best-narrated ones.

Did you ever own a Raggedy Ann doll? Did you know she has her own book of stories? The Raggedy Ann and Andy stories are sweet and delightful, especially for little girls.

The Among the People series by Clara Dillingham Pierson is very similar to the works of Thornton W Burgess. If your kids love his books, give these a try.

If your child is a bit more adventuresome, they might enjoy these stories about dragons (don’t worry, they aren’t too scary).

And, of course, Beatrix Potter’s classics like Peter Rabbit.

Of course, if it’s a newer book you are wanting, Audible is the place to look for it. We enjoy our membership, and you can try it free by clicking the link below.

Do you have any favorite Librivox books for younger kids you would like to recommend?
