Audiobook Recorded by Children
The ASP School Book Club
Carrie Wimmer, a talented narrator, mentioned to me that she's been teaching children about narration at her local school's after school program. Carrie has a beautiful voice, she narrated three of my audiobooks.
Carrie was looking for a book with short dialogs that would be suitable for children to read, so I offered one of my children's book, Meetoo The Annoying Little Sister.
About the book
The children are excited about the project, and Carrie said that they have lots of fun practicing and recording the character lines with Carrie's guidance.
Meanwhile, the children are learning how to set up a soundproof room, what kind of equipments they need, and how to edit the audio they recorded.
I'm a huge supporter of children's art, music, and reading programs that helps to develop young children's creativity and imagination while having fun. Carrie's after school program fulfills this role.
I truly appreciate the school administrator's efforts and support to make this program possible!
And a heartfelt thank you to Carrie for volunteering to teach the children about the magical world of book narration!
To protect the children's privacy when posting about the project, I created avatars for the children who participate in the recording. The parents and the school allowed to add the children's full names to the avatars they chose.
Some of the characters are assigned and the recording began. I'm looking forward to listening to the recordings with great excitement.
A little bit about the story
This looks great, Erika! The kids will be so excited to see their names on your website!
I'm so glad they like the avatars, and I think I'm as excited about the project as they are
