In order to use this site you need to have Real Player which is a free download, you will find the link to download Real Player near the top of the page.
Why would you want to have Real Player for this site? Well because you get to listen to famous, and not so famous, people read works of literature.
In the “Kid’s Corner” you can listen to the tale of Peter Rabbit, and right next door you could listen to Alice ‘s Adventure’s in Wonderland. Not to forget great literary works like Macbeth, The Illiad or the The Aeneid.
There is also poetry from “classic English poems, including poetry by Blake, Burns, Byron, Donne, Herbert, Hunt, Keats, and Shakespeare,” to the “Den of Lions” poems, and the poetry of Emily Dickinson.
Not to mention all the wonderful non-fiction and fiction that you can listen to! This site gets an A++ in my opinion for being so diverse, and for bringing so many wonderful poems, and stories together in one place for people to listen to.
