Do you travel a lot with your children? Do you enjoy reading and telling stories to your children? Have you ever tried audio books in your home? Maybe you should try an audio book on your next road trip with the children.
Audio books are wonderful things for adults and children alike. Adults will use audio books because a lot of us just do not have the time to read a book anymore but still love a really good story. With using an audio book we can listen to a great story while we do the dishes or cook dinner. We can listen to an audio book story while we cut the lawn or even while we go for a jog.
There are many reasons and many different ways that we as adults can use audio books. But for those people that use audio books have you ever considered using an audio book for a child? Have you ever thought about using an audio book of a children’s story before? Well maybe it is about time that you broadened your audio book use to your children.
I remember as a small child that my parents would use audio books while driving for me and my siblings. We would start out in the car and the story would begin. We would be so enthralled with listening to the story that we would forget that we were driving and we would forget to fight and we would forget to ask are we there yet. Audio books of children’s stories are wonderful for that.
I remember that we had audio books of several Disney movies. I can still remember Snow White and the Seven Dwarves being my favorite audio book as a child. How I loved to hear the dwarves sing their song while they were digging. Even many, many years later I can still hear it in my mind and it brings back warm and wonderful memories rather quickly.
These same feelings can be in your children when they are older, all by using audio books now for your children’s favorite child stories. They will love to pass the time on the road while listening to their favorite stories told over and over again with audio books. There are usually several different actors or narrators in children stories and there is sometimes music and singing also.
Using audio books instead of just plugging in the portable DVD player will help your child’s imagination grow and flourish. Even though your child has seen the latest Harry Potter movie or Narnia Chronicles why not try these books out in an audio book format. Let them see how wonderful a book really can be.
You can get these online audiobooks and download them to your personal computer or laptop. After that you can either choose to burn a CD and bring it into the car or you can simply transfer the audio book file to an MP3 player or an iPod and bring that into your car with some kind of adapter. Either way your child will be able to hear their favorite book come to life in an audio book and they will be able to experience it in a whole new way.
Using audiobooks download is an inexpensive and a creative way to keep children occupied on long road trips and even short trips across town. Once they are hooked on the audio book they may not want to get out of the car at all and they will want to stay and listen to the rest of the story. audiobooks download could actually make you have to drive more just so your child can hear their favorite story over again in the car.
