Hitting the road for a family adventure has never looked more enticing than it does in 2022. With travel for most of limited to pretty close to home, packing up the car for a staycation is taking the place of airline holidays.

While the extra time as a family is a bonus, having kids in the car for any length of time can come with a few challenges. While devices are good for distracting bored passengers, they’re not exactly social.

Cue audio books …

Whether it’s a three-hour car trip to the beach house, having a break from TV time, listening during craft activities, or winding down before bed, an audio book is a great way to make lifelong memories with your family.



See below for a list of 15 audiobooks, including classic story time favourites that the whole family will enjoy, as well as some kids’ and young adult listens to help while away the hours on the road.
