Books on CD to iPod tutorial

A few weeks ago, I blogged about how I wanted to move my listening center to an iPod so that my kiddos could be cord free.  I cleared everything off my iPod Touch and set it up with new books for my kiddos to listen to.  It was a little bit of a learning curve, but really easy once I figured it out, so I wanted to share the easy steps with you:

Just follow the steps in order and you’ll be good to go! 🙂  Let me know if you have any questions!  I am working with an older iPod Touch, so I know it works with those that are 2-3 years old. 🙂

If you’d like to help me get two more iPods you can donate to my Donor’s Choose grant here.

  1. I see you are on Discovery …… I can’t find where the books are on that website so I can transfer to the iPod. Will it work for an MP3 player?


    • Hi Holly,
      The “Discovery” part that you see is the wall paper on my computer. They do not have any books on their site that I am aware of. I pulled down the window that was open down so that you could see the picture of the book cover I had on my desktop. This should work on an MP3 player, but I do not have one, so I am not positive.

  4. I teach children with special needs who have a difficult time with traditional listening centers. I put fully digital books found on discovery and youtube on old android phones using Kids place and kids place video (prevents the children from accessing other parts of the phone since cell phones without plans can still call 911). I have even made some videos myself and you can have videos of parents or familiar staff read stories. The kids enjoy them and I got the phones donated. These videos may work on the iPod touch if it is not too old (you don’t need the apps for iPods)
