Family-Friendly Audiobooks for Road Trips

Few things fill the time faster than listening to an audiobook.  As we get ready for our summer road trip, I decided to dedicate this Travel Time Tuesday to some good literature.

Disclaimer- I have not listened to every one of these audiobooks.  I read the books (mainly as a child), but I feel pretty confident that these books are still family-friendly today.  Oh, and this blog is an Amazon Affiliate so all the links will take you to Amazon.

{Good For Everyone}

Anne of Green Gables (my very favorite book from childhood)

Mouse and the Motorcycle (and other books by Beverly Cleary)

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

The Indian in the Cupboard

Alice in Wonderland

Mr. Poppers Penguins

Mary Poppins


{For Older Audiences}

The Hobbit

Jurassic Park

The Help (I love the 4 different voices in the reading)

The Poisonwood Bible (would also be interesting because of the 5 women narrators)

And, of course, classics like Pride and Prejudice, The Three Musketeers, Les Miserables, etc.


If you're buying with Audible (an Amazon company), pay attention to the price of the books and only use your credits if you don't want to pay the cover price for a book.  For example, Anne of Green Gables could use up one of your audible credits OR you could just pay $0.95 and save your credit for the pricier books (like the Hobbit which is almost $18)  Just a tip to help you stretch your "vacation dollars."
