Are you taking a long car trip this summer?  Make the miles go faster by listening to an audiobook as a family.  Young children can listen to books beyond their reading level and older readers can enjoy novels that hold their attention.  Families who listen together end up with a common experience they can share.  Don’t be surprised if you end up with some driveway moments – when no one wants to get out of the car until the chapter is over!

Most titles are available as a book on CD or as an e-audiobook. Here are a few titles to get you started:
