31 Days of Smart Summer Fun, Day 12: Audio Books for Road Trips

Are you gearing up for a road trip this summer? Summer break is one of those times
of year that almost inevitably requires a road trip, either to visit family. We can feel the open road beckoning us!

Once you’ve decided to hit the road, you have to convince the kids how much fun it
will be. And this requires strategy: How will we pass the time? How can we make the hours of stop-and-go travel into an enjoyable family time? Audio books are just the thing to cement that feeling of family road trip togetherness. We like the idea of putting the headphones away and listening to a story together. Here are a few of our favorites:
The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. Narrated by Jim Dale.
The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman. Narrated by the author.
The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman. Narrated by the author.
Inkheart by Cornelia Funke. Narrated by Lynn Redgrave.
The Bad Beginning by Lemony Snicket. Narrated by Tim Curry.
How to Train Your Dragon by Cressida Crowell. Narrated by David Tennant.
Henry Huggins by Beverly Cleary. Narrated by Neil Patrick Harris.
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum. Narrated by Anne Hathaway.
