Barrie off and on during the drive and absolutely loved it! My son will be 4 in August and so I know most of it went over his head but I was amazed at how absorbed he was in the story. He kept begging for us to listen to it. My girls, who were 5 and 6 at the time, surprised me by loving the Peter Pan recording from librivox.
Peter and the Starcatcher series is performed by the same reader as the J. Barrie books and it is wonderful. I recommend it highly. Oh, this is perfect! I was just about to start researching some new audiobooks for our road trip this summer.
We are driving from Houston to Richmond, VA in a couple of weeks and working hard to find lots to keep our two boys occupied. We have read some of these but there are lots of new ones here. We love that one! I agree that the Hank the Cowdog series is great fun for the entire family. I have four girls, ages 3, 5, 7, and 9. Perennial favorites of the whole family. Also a kidnapping that ends happily in The Saturdays.
Love this list!! So many favorites from my childhood here. I listened to the whole Inkheart series on audio book. The first one is narrated by Lynda Redgrave and it is beautiful. My daughter also really enjoyed the City of Ember series, but she said it was one of the rare instances when the movie was better than the book.
Our whole family really enjoyed listening to Mary Poppins while on a road trip last summer. Actress Sophie Thomson is a great reader! Thanks for this list! Our family loves audiobooks too. We listen to them on our long road trip every Thanksgiving. Gone Away Lake is the perfect summer book!
I had a recent post on my blog with some of our other favorites. It was tough to get those logistics figured out. Good luck! Thanks for the recs! What a great list! Our kids love audiobooks. How to Train Your Dragon. Narrated by David Tennant? In fact, they have many great ones! Kids mesmerized:. A credit is basically one book.
Thanks for this post! Love this so much.
I love Neil Patrick Harris narration. This is great! I recently finished reading the first three books of this series and was so drawn into the story. I am eager to read them with own boys but need to wait until they are a little older—I thought the series would be more appropriate for older elementary and above. An absolutely excellent series! Have you had much luck finding audiobooks from some of the free sites that are good quality narration? I feel like audiobooks can be really expensive…often more expensive than buying the book.
I love having them and its great for my kids when they have their afternoon quiet times or for travel…. Our library has a very limited selection. Check with your library for audiobook rentals. They may have discs at the library, but most libraries also have an on-line library of e-books and audiobooks that can be downloaded though they do expire after a certain amount of time. I have quite a few students that are reading a few grades above grade level and I am running into the problem of recommending 4th grade level books that are not too scary or developmentally inappropriate for a six year old especially boys-I only have sisters!
Any thoughts? Oh my goodness, I completely understand, having had the same issue with my own kids. Also, have you seen my kid lit guide Paper Gains? My daughter is 8, loves both reading and audiobooks. She listens to audiobooks all day long while she is working on chores, playing, or being creative. Some of her favorites that she goes back to over and over again are:. Fortunately, the Milk by Neil Gaiman and read by him was a hit with my 2, 4, and 6 year old. I keep hearing great things! What do you listen to them on?
Do you need head phones to listen? Do you buy these books on your kindle and then can listen to them with audio, sorry for all the questions. There are many ways to listen to audiobooks but I usually use the free Audible app on my iPhone. We are listening to the Ramona series now and love it. Another great one, for the younger set, is the Frog and Toad series, read by the author, Peter Lobel. We love picking up E-Books at Cracker Barrels and listening on long drives.
Two of the kids are homeschooled which is nice to have in a book!! What a fantastic list! We love audiobooks too. We listened to Watership Down on our last road trip and the whole family loved it! Also, our oldest son 10 with dyslexia used to struggle painfully with reading. The other cast members on this CD are also excellent and thoroughly charming. The background music score is brilliant. The Stephen Fry read Harry Potter audiobooks have always been a big hit in our house!
I think we could all nearly recite the whole series off by heart its been that well listened to! There are quite a few original short stories that you can download onto a computer or into an app, so its been ideal for us! I think audio books are great for kids! My oldest son has visual impairment so it is the only but the best option for him!! We love audio books of Miraj Audio, great for muslim kids! I have a 6 and 5 year old daughters and a 2 year old.
I want to get a handful of audiobooks for these long car rides.
