  1. thank you so much for this, i have no musical talent AT ALL! i even sing off key, so i struggle with being able to teach my children music, this will help. my 5 year old disabled child has to learn differently, mostly by audio, so this will also help with her. An enormous thank you.

  2. Thank you for all the freebies. My family loves them all. Thank you for the time that you put in doing this. God bless! 🙂

  3. On each one when you open up the story it lets you listen some where in the middle of the story to something. I seem to open it and it takes me to windows media player so I can listen but I’m not able to. I can listen to the stories but not the other. Can you please help me? Thanks for these websites.

  4. Wonderful, awesome freebies!! Thanks for them Jim. Our kids miss your daughter’s funny videos. They brought a smile to our face.

  5. Thank you so much. Homeschooling can be challenging as we all know and these little freebies are like the ‘pat on the back’ I need! Seriously, I really, really appreciate them!
