Medieval Times Children’s Audio Books

The appeal of children’s books about medieval adventures and fantasies endures as they hold some universal truths that make humanity prevail. It was the age of chivalry, valor, and the fight between virtue and evil – storytelling features that easily captivate young minds.

King Arthur, his knights and Merlin the Wise come to life in Benedict Flynn’s ‘King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table,’ with digital audio effects, clear narration by the actor Sean Bean, and crisp dialogues.

The stories are about how Arthur, with the help of his brave knights, sets out to save the land from the wicked, how the wizard Merlin fought the wicked Morgana le Fay’s enchantments, and how the future king of England loved and lost Guinevere.

Another great medieval legend lives again in this re-telling of the famous story, ‘Robin Hood,’ again by Benedict Flynn, and narrated by John McAndrew. Dressed in green, with his trusty longbow never far from his hands, Robin rules the Sherwood Forest, undoing the evil design of his arch-enemy, the Sheriff of Nottingham, and Guy of Guisborne, the sheriff’s evil henchman.

Robin gets some needed help from friends Little John, Will Scarlett, Friar Tuck and Lady Marion in saving their countrymen from the sheriff’s abuses and his mysterious sister, the Prioress.

The East has its unforgettable medieval tales that have enthralled many generations across cultures. Narrator Toby Stephens takes us to the world of adventure, cunning, mishap and fun.

Sheherezade, night after night, weaves her tales of Aladdin and his Magic Lamp, Sinbad the Sailor, Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves and other tales cherished by children and adults worldwide. The scenes are perfectly set with the music of Rimsky-Korsakov. All in all, it’s a delightful treat for young listeners.

For a trip to the world of medieval fantasy, ‘Farmer Giles of Ham’ is one of J.R.R. Tolkien’s most popular stories, full of wit and set in the days when giants and dragons walked the earth.

Farmer Giles is an unlikely hero – fat and enjoying a laid-back life. But he lives up to the billing when a giant and later a dragon come his way.

All the stories mentioned are just a few among the medieval times children’s audio books you can download from online vendors, like The Talking Book Store. For a minimal fee, you can download an audio book into your computer and you can later load the audio file into your iPod, smart phone, or any handy player. You can even burn it into a CD, DVD or Blu-Ray disk.
