Audiobooks Make the Holiday Road Bearable
Spring break is coming up and many families will be hitting the road to visit relatives or go to the beach. Those long road trips can get on anybody’s nerves. Why not stop by the library and pick up an audio book to entertain everyone on the trip?
We have this year’s Newbery-winning book Flora & Ulysses: The Illuminated Adventures, which is a great family listen. The Newbery Medal award is given to the author of "the most distinguished contribution to American literature for children" each year. This is a second win for this year's winner Kate DiCamillo. Jim Dale will keep the family thoroughly entertained with his skillful rendition of the Harry Potter series for those who have not read the books. Charlie Joe Jackson’s Guide to not Reading is a hilarious tale of the lengths to which a boy will go to not read a book that will leave the whole family laughing.
You can find these titles and many others on CDs or as downloadable audio books at your library, so check some out for those long road trips. They will make your drive as fun as the rest of your vacation.
