AudibleKids is an engaging, interactive community of parents, their kids, and educators that promotes the fun of storytelling through audiobooks. Listen to books, read and post reviews and share your favorites with others.
This site has a nice selection of books to listen to, which can be put on an ipod. The issue with this site is the cost of the books. Each book costs money and some of them I bet you could get at the libary for free.
Not necessarily an educational site, but a lot of fun. It is like to provide students with fun things to do at home; an alternative to finding themselves in trouble on line. This site is pretty cool!
