I’m Abubakar Abu Hend from Sudan I have a telegram channel with more than 16000 subscribers all of them are seeking a way to learn English language most of them from Arab world I’m working hard to help them learning English by coaching them , writing articles about how to learn English and by recommending useful materials ( sites , books etc).
Now There is a very useful series of books called ( the new method readers by Michael Philip West ), he was an English language teacher and researcher who worked extensively in India in the mid 1900s. He produced the reading scheme "The New Method Readers" and A General Service List of English Words )) this series has been published 1929
This series was created to help children to learn English and it work so well, I learned English from this series and I recommended it to my channel subscribers but they struggling with reading so now I hope if find someone could help with his voice by making audios for this series of books I’m not going to Publish them in US so don’t worry about copyright

Well we can't officially as we are US based. Do you have any idea when the author died? That may help a non USA reader be sure whether they can legally help you ?

l will move this over to Off Topic as it isn't LV related.

I'm afraid it does not look good for non-USians either, since Michael Philip West died only in 1973, according to wikipedia:

You will have to contact the publisher of the book(s) in question and ask for permission to record them.

You could look online for the contact information of the publisher that is mentioned in the copyright page of the book.
If I'm not mistaken, the publisher for the book you want is Longmans, Green and Company. If so, they are now owned by Pearson, so look for contact information for Longman / Pearson.
