I'm not sure if I'll be taking a road trip these holidays, but if I was I'd be picking up some audio books to take along. Essential Kids has compiled a great list of audio books for children on long (or short - maybe a day trip down the coast would be fun!) car trips. They include Harry Potter and Lemony Snicket, which are hugely popular in our library, as well as classics such as Treasure Island. See their selection here.
One of my personal favourites for the younger crew is Julia Donaldson's 'Mr Birdsnest and the house next door'.
Most bookshops have a great selection of children's audio books available, or you can buy them online from books stores such as Dymocks and Booktopia. If you order now, they should arrive before the school holiday break.
Happy reading (er, listening!).
*This is not a paid promotion for Dymocks or Booktopia. There are many options for purchasing audio books and these are just a couple of suggestions. You could also try Amazon or Book Depository.
