Multcolib Recommends: Classic listens for the all-ages road trip
Annotation:Just one of many audio versions of this fantastical story, including downloadables, this one is read by Miriam Margolyes, aka Professor Sprout from the Harry Potter movies.
Annotation:I'm not usually a fan of dramatized stories, but this cast convinced me. It includes Stephen Fry (Pooh), Judi Dench (Kanga) and Jane Horrocks as a memorable Piglet. Also available to download.
Annotation:Jim Dale pushed audiobooks into a new era with his narrations of this beyond-famous series. If you've got a really long trip ahead of you, all seven books will last you more than 116 hours, but the books get pretty dark at the end! Also available to download.
Annotation:Some authors can't narrate their own work, but the gentle down-East inflections of author E.B. White are the perfect guide to this delightful story of friendship. Also available to download.
Annotation:Each year, librarians select a few audiobooks as the best of the best for youth. Check them out for more road-trip listens.
Annotation:The Association for Library Services to Children produces this annual list of audiobooks and music for listeners ages 0 to 14. Check them out for more road-trip listens.
Annotation:The Young Adult Library Services Association produces this annual lists of audiobooks for listeners ages 12 to 18. Check them out for more road-trip listens.
