Audible or Amazon ~ July Sale on Over 1000 Children's Audiobooks

I'm not an affiliate ... so this is just a share-the-joy post   :)
There are so many good audio stories on sale  over at Audible during July for  $3.95 USD  ($5.39 NZD)   or less; or,  if you don't have an  Audible account you can still purchase directly through Amazon.com

ETA: For NZ readers make sure you check for any recently added audiobooks  at ePukapuka, as some of the titles on sale at audible/amazon are available free through our local libraries.

If you'd like a jump start with audible, beneath are some linked chapter book suggestions from us, other than more obvious titles on offer from authors such as:

Laura Ingalls Wilder
C.S. Lewis (1)
Frances Hodgson Burnett
(  Heidi  )
L.M. Montgomery
Eleanor Estes       2 titles
George Selden     1 title
Brian Jacques         our family is not fussed on this series, many are :-)
Gertrude Warner         Box Car children books, scroll thru the list
Enid Blyton
Authur Ransome 
Kathryn Lasky          I recommend previewing each book in the Ga'hoole series before handing to your children, some topics needed discussion here - we used this series to discuss differing world views, and one title we skipped completely
Louisa May Alcott
Marguerite Henry      1 title
Scott O'Dell       2 titles
Jean Fritz
Martha Finley
Dick King-Smith titles   so many.     I've linked a few of our choices beneath
