I wanted to get a few more audio books. I have the Trumpeter Swan and James Herriots’s Treasury for Children already! Do you ladies have any favorites that you especially love on audio? I have 6 kids (my school age kids are 8 1/2, 7 and 6 and the “littles” are 4, 3 and 2).alphabetikaParticipant
I’ll have to brainstorm more titles, but I had to post because I came on to post the two that you mentioned! We are listening to both of these right now and we love them. If you like Trumpet of the Swan narrated by EB White, you might also like Charlotte’s Web, written and narrated by him. I like the Paddington books narrated by Stephen Fry also. Anything narrated by John McDonough. We like the “Freddy the Pig” books narrated by him.
I’m sure I’ll think of more but I’m looking forward to reading this thread, because we’re taking a roadtrip from Southern CA to Northern WA next month and we need some good listening!TristanParticipant
The Secret Garden
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz
all the Little House on the Prairie books (only available on cd, not downloads as far as I know, and worth every penny)
If you do fantasy another we have loved is the Fablehaven series by Brandon Mull.
Ramona Quimby series
All of the Chronicles of Narnia series.
Winnie the PoohReganParticipant
Thanks so much!!! I will look into these! I still have no idea why I typed Trumpeter Swan instead of Trumpet of the Swan….lol. The kids came to me with a few questions when I was typing out my question and clearly didn’t catch my mistake! Thanks for the suggestions. We are discovering how much we really love audio books sprinkled in!Melanie32Participant
I second the Little House on the Prairie series! They are fantastic.
My daughter greatly enjoyed The Wind In The Willows by the BBC.
We also like Focus on the Family radio theater. We love their Anne of Green Gables.bethannaParticipant

Mine are all still littles (4 and under), but they love and listen repeatedly to: Frog and Toad read by the author Arnold Lobel, Jim Weiss’ Uncle Wiggly Stories, Winnie the Pooh Stephen Fry version, and Frances stories read by Glynis Johns. Paddington stories were not a hit and Sigourney Weaver’s Little Bear collection was too boring. I recommend listening to samples on YouTube before purchasing. That’s what I do now 🙂
