Audio Books for Family Road Trips

I have a road trip coming up with Liza and Jason so I stopped by the library to grab some audio books. As I was browsing the shelves I was remembering some great audio books we have listened to in the past and thought I would share them. If you have kids and a trip coming up... try to get to the library and grab one or two of the following audio books... It's a great way to pass the time and not miss the scenery you pass on the way! And I have to say that I enjoy that it is something that everyone in the car can be a part of and talk about. I can't watch movies while driving... but listening to a good book? No problem!



 Junie B. Jones cracks us all up! Lana Quintal is the perfect reader for this series. The books are short and there are several in a case. We listen to one, and then another. Super cute stories!



Liza and Jason love a mystery and the Boxcar Children always have one to solve. We enjoy listening to the stories and trying to figure out who's guilty.



 Beverly Cleary's rib-tickling tale of Henry Huggins' dog Ribsy is a must for fans of the Klickitat Street gang. Confused, lost, and wet, Ribsy gets into the wrong car – and before he knows it, lots of little girls want to give him a bath. All he wants to do is go home to Henry. "A fabulous listening experience... [Harris] transports the listener effortlessly into the midst of each situation."—AudioFile
 
Can't go wrong with Neil Patrick Harris! He is definitely an entertaining reader and made this book very enjoyable to listen to.



Fourth-graders Hank, Ashley, and Frankie are excitedly preparing for a magic show at the Rock 'N Bowl when Hank's creative alternative to an English essay lands him in detention and grounded the week of the show.
 
Another one for the whole family to enjoy!




 With unspeakable phobias, a need to sleep with three night-lights, and a horrible allergy to peanut butter, Joe Sherlock is not your typical neighborhood hero. But fear not, Joe Sherlock always cracks the case... and just in time for dinner.

This was our favorite ever! All three. They were just FUNNY. Fred Berman brought these books to life!! There are three more books in the series but I don't want to read them... I want to listen to them! Unfortunately only the first three are on audio.

These books had us laughing hard. We listened to one when my mom and dad were in the van with us and they enjoyed it as well.

Joe Sherlock contains lots of boy humor and mysteries that need to be solved. I just might have to listen to them again sometime because they were that fun to listen to!
