Relaxing

In the current climate, I need something to help me relax after a stressful day working from home. Listening to these stories certainly helps me to wind down. I recommend everyone listens to this soft, eloquent voice.

So relaxing

I have just come across takes-by-the-fire-side, After listening to a few audio books. Joe has such a nice relaxing voice, the crackling of the fire just makes it much more relaxing. I love all of his stories especially Peter Rabbit, my son loves Joe Reading one of his favourite books.
If you’re looking for a nice relaxing audio book Tales-by-the-fire-side is the best place to look!
We can’t wait for Joe to do more!
