ESL & Adult Literacy Listening and Reading - Audiobooks - esl-bits.net - adult-literacy.us
By Pam Muñoz Ryan

Esperanza thought she'd always live with her family on their ranch in Mexico--she'd always have fancy dresses, a beautiful home, and servants. But a sudden tragedy forces Esperanza and Mama to flee to California and to settle in a camp for Mexican farm workers. Esperanza isn't ready for the hard labor and struggles, she now faces. When their new life is threatened, Esperanza must find a way to rise above her difficult circumstances--Mama's life, and her own, depend on it.

THE GINGERBREAD GIRL
Short Stories for English Language Learners
by Stephen King

After suffering a devastating loss, Em starts running. Soon she runs from her husband, to the airport, then down to the Florida Gulf and out to the loneliest stretch of Vermillion Key. Running is helping her heal, until one day she makes the mistake of looking into the driveway of a man named Pickering. Pickering also enjoys the privacy of Vermillion Key, but the young women he brings there suffer the consequences. Will Em be next?

MONSIEUR ROSE
Short Stories for English Language Learners
By Irène Némirovsky

"Then it was 1939 and Monsieur Rose stopped having dreams. In fact, he slept less and less. How difficult it was, in this shifting, unstable world, to steer a course with certainty, as one used to do. Monsieur Rose foresaw disasters ahead. He regretted them very much, but as he could neither avoid them himself, nor help anyone else to do so, there was only one rational response: his only concern was for himself, for his own well-being and his own fortune."
