Audiobooks for Children

June 15, 2011 - 11:33 pm No Comments

Going on a a road trip this summer? It’s the perfect time to check out some audio books from the library. Audio books are great for a number of reasons. Even though all of your children may not be able to read or maybe they are all reading at different levels, they can all enjoy the same audio book. We listen to audiobooks all the time in the car. (Not only is it great because they are listening to books, but it keeps them from bickering in the car…they can’t hear the story if they are arguing.) 🙂 We just finished listening to the ENTIRE ten book 39 Clues series. (As great as it was, I do not recommend this series unless all of your children are over the age of eight or nine…there were some parts that were a bit violent.) Now we are listening to The Magic Treehouse Series…much less violent. 🙂 The narrator, who also happens to be the author of the books, does a great job and they are all appropriate for the entire family. Here are some other books/series that are great listening for the whole family:

*Berenstain Bears
*Little House on the Prairie Series
*Frog and Toad Series
*A Light in the Attic
*Biscuit Series
*Tikki Tikki Tembo
*Curious George
*The Three Billy Goats Gruff
*Amelia Bedelia Series
*The Boxcar Children Series
