Conclusion: Homeschool Preschool Books
My kids love listening to homeschool preschool books as audiobooks. Audiobooks open up a world of adventure to younger children. Listening to audiobooks on Youtube also means you can listen to many audiobooks for free! I would try to find a book title you like and type in the name followed by ‘audiobook’. For example, ‘Little Pilgrims Progress audiobook’. Alternatively, you can listen on Audible which has a better range and better readers. Don’t forget to subscribe to my Youtube channel called ‘How to Homeschool’ here.
