Character Trait Audios
On this page you will find audios of chapters found in Elizabeth McCracken's 'How To Teach Children Through Stories.' It was written as a guide to Eva March Tappan's 'The Children's Hour.' Not all of the volumes of The Children's Hour are available on Internet Archive, so I have recorded stories from my copy so that you have access to them.
