Do you place a lot of weight on education? I sure do! That is why I was really excited when I read a post on Boots N All about audio books for kids and how they can be used to quell boredom on long trips.
Perhaps you have heard of Audible, which is one of the biggest audio books companies. They have a special section for kids called – surprise! – AudibleKids. From this site, you can download a wide variety of audio books that can keep your children amused while on the road.
I am sure that you have had your share of tough road trips wherein you can barely control the children in the back seat. Boredom can cause a lot of complications. From whining to nagging to fights erupting – all these can come about due to the simple fact that kids do not have something to keep them occupied while traveling.
Of course, we have the traditional tricks to keep them happy. Food, books, games, and the like are some of the favorites. I think that having the kids listen to audio books is an innovative way of keeping them content while, at the same time, adding a little bit to their educational experience. This is even more practical for those children who suffer from car sickness.
AudibleKids has a very nice selection on offer. The audio books are quite affordable as well – I saw some selections going for as low as $6. If you are taking a road trip soon, I suggest heading over to this site and take your pick!
