Story of the World #3: Early Modern ~ Online Audio Book List !!!

For the last 2 years our family has been going through Story of the World for our core curriculum and we are loving nearly every moment of it! Our first year was ANCIENTS and this past year was the MIDDLE AGES.

One of the things we've all enjoyed is listening to other texts and literature that compliment our chapter topics each week. Sometimes it is poetry, fairy tales, more information on a specific person or a novel from that period of time... what makes it even better is our sources are FREE and audio books (I DON'T HAVE TO READ THEM!!!)

Stuff to know about these lists...

- I haven't listened to all of the links/books provided. It is on you to to ensure it is a good source for your students.
- Many of the links provided contains content that is sensitive and disturbing to children (or really everyone)... Slavery, Trail of Tears, Plagues, Opium and Wars abound in this time period.
- Some of the topics and books don't directly apply to that week's topic... but generally that is what I was shooting for.

I've marked each book I haven't personally previewed with - *?*
I've marked the books I know contain material that requires parental intervention with - *!*
