The Best Children’s Audiobooks
Audiobooks have the power to turn a disastrous car trip into an enjoyable family moment. They can even help lure a restless sleeper into dreamland. But, did you know that audiobooks can actually help improve listening and comprehension skills. They’re also a great tool for introducing readers to new authors, and helping reluctant readers connect to a story by providing a different sensory experience. The trick is finding a quality story with a quality narrator.
In a Cookie Magazine article by Christopher Healy, 16 excellent audiobooks have been listed with audio clips and mini-reviews. Each one is narrated by actors, such as: Gwyneth Paltrow, John Lithgow, and Meryl Streep. If you have kids between the ages of 3 and 12, I highly recommend taking a look at this list: Children’s Audiobooks

Does your family have a favorite audiobook? A favorite narrator? My family enjoys The Velveteen Rabbit read by Meryl Streep. If you love fables and true classics, I suggest checking out Rabbit Ears Entertainment.
