I love stories being read to me. There is something about being able to close your eyes and listen to the story being told to you, while you lay on the couch all cuddled up with a big, warm blanket.
In my youth, my mom would read to my brother and I all sorts of books. It was lovely. But she couldn’t always read to me, because she was a mom and had all these other things to get done…so she introduced us to audiobooks.
They. Were. Awesome.
Still to this day the whole family listens to audiobooks, especially on long trips. The younger two boys listen to audiobooks every school night, usually about history, but sometimes just fun books like…
3 audiobooks boys will love:
Sugar Creek Gang
All three of my brothers and I loved listening to the Sugar Creek Gang audiobooks. We loved how a group of Christian boys would get together and do the things we all want to do. The adventures and mischievous feats of the gang often lead themselves into some sort of mystery, which makes these audiobooks so captivating, it’ll have your boys on the edge of their seat, wondering what will happen next. Throughout this series, your sons (and daughters, too) will learn to become an example for Christ and learn to stand up for what is right. Your whole family will find this audiobook fascinating to listen to on those long car rides, or just something to pass the time… (The movies are really great, too! Oh, and they have book series as well..)
If your son loves learning about God’s creation, loves adventure, mystery, and suspense then this series of audiobooks is just for your kid(s)! The first time I listened to this series, I had no idea what to think. I thought it would be some boring collection of evidence for creation, I had no idea that it would be like a movie! It was totally awesome. In every series of Jonathan Park (There are eight plus a couple other ones) there is a competition between evolution and creation and the whole Creation Response Team has to find all the evidence to prove the evolutionists wrong. Through it all there are kidnappings, a constant enemy who is trying to stop their team from find the truth, the team is put into scary situations, and more. I am positive your kids will be asking to listen to more…and honestly, you will, too! This series is so packed full of information and God’s word, there is no way you and your family will not come away without learning something to defend your faith. (This series is coming out in books, too!)
The book written by John Bunyan, many years ago, still holds some great power of the child’s imagination, especially when it is told through audiobook. If I were to read the book myself, I would probably have been bored out of my mind (sorry, but that is the honest truth…) as I droned on reading page after page of an old story. I don’t think I would have seen the whole excitement thing if it weren’t for listening to Pilgrim’s Progress on audiobook. I tell you, that brings you in faster than you can say, “Robinson Crusoe.” I grew up listening to the audiobook done by Hark!® Audio, but I am told that it wasn’t the best one, unlike the one done by New Leaf Pr. (Unabridged edition). Either way, they are both super awesome with over 50 actors/actresses and some cool sound effects. If you are looking to get the book for your child, I highly suggest you buy the audiobook versus the book.
