A few notes about the “podcast”

1. I decided to create this because I wanted reading to be easier for students that have a hard time reading.  I was one of those students in my younger years and I would have benefited from my teacher creating an “audio book.” (That is if audio books would have been in existence)

2.  I never planned on creating an audio book.  I decided to create one because there was not an audio book available on the internet, which means that I did not have a lot of time or knowledge to edit and rerecord my voice in garageband.  There were times when I caught myself completely mispronouncing a word. I apologize for any confusion my mispronunciations may have caused.

  1. Hi Anthony, is there a way to access the whole podcast? We are reading Mara Daughter of the Nile in my 6th grade classroom right now and would love to have this audio option. Thank you!

      Nicole! I am so sorry, but I just saw this. Do you need it or is it too late?
