What are your favorite audiobooks? We’re going to be spending a lot of time in the car with our upcoming move and I’d like to have some fresh audiobooks to listen to.
We really liked “Love, Ruby Lavender” and “All of a Kind Family”. My daughter read the book “Stowaway” which she LOVED. I know that one is on audiobook…
Not sure what age your children are, but for kids of 3-9 years, the Jesus Storybook Bible by Sally Lloyd Jones is now available on audio CD and is a MUST! My daughter listens to it all the time and remembers so much.
we like Hank the Cowdog – not really educational, although we have used it for life lessons – (what could have been done instead of..) but hilarious and we all enjoy it.
What are the ages of your children?
My children are 18, 8 and 4 years old.
We have loved the Little House on the Prarie books, Mr Poppers Penguins, The Hobbit, and many that are on the books list. Right now we are listening to The Door in the Wall. It seems like even when you have no where to go you are always going so we make sure to have at least one audio in the car to listen to at all times.
I signed up just now to add:
Around the World in Eighty Days (unabridged).
These aren’t “audiobooks” but my kids ages 17, 13, 11, & 8 love listening to the Jonathan Park CDs from Vision Forum. They sell them at Amazon also.
There have been a few other threads about this with many listed. Check out these links, too.
Two of our favorites are Homer Price and (especially) Centerburg Tales. They are narrated by John McDonough, who is our favorite narrator. He absolutely makes these stories wonderfully entertaining!
Hi Girls — My daughter (age 2 1/2) loves listening to Winnie the Pooh audio book. I downloaded it from iTunes; The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh read by Christopher Plummer. This is by far the best Pooh audio as it includes music. I bought a three disk one from a Barnes and Nobles read by someone else but it was too dry.
My sons like the My Father’s Dragon series.
I prefer the full cast Pooh with Dame Judi Dench.
I second the Little House series! The narrator is wonderful. 🙂
We’ve also enjoyed Anne of Green Gables, Alice in Wonderland and The Wind in the Willows. We’ve listened to many audio books over the years but these have been our favorites.
