I can't recommend this site enough. Storyline is famous (and semi-famous) actors reading well known books aloud. Not audiocasts, but videocasts. Eryn loves them. Among those available (and there are others):

To Be a Drum read by James Earl Jones
My Rotten Redheaded Older Brother read by Melissa Gilbert
Brave Irene read by Al Gore
The Polar Express read by Lou Diamond Phillips
Me and My Cat by Elijah Wood
Enemy Pie by Camryn Manheim

Just don't let your web saavy kid who knows how to navigate the site get anywhere near Jason Alexander's Dad, Are You the Tooth Fairy? It has a warning on it. I came skittering over to the top of the stairs, my fingers covered in Bisquick and parmesean cheese, yelling for Pooteewheet to stop her because she was going to watch something that "was too scary for little kids!" Eryn was disappointed. I'm pretty sure she has some suspicions that it's not scary at all, but hides a secret.
