The Best Audiobooks To Keep Your Kids Happy In The Car

We all know that car journeys with the kids aren’t always easy! Those road trips that were meant to be a bit of fun quickly turn a bit crazy if your children get bored. Thankfully, audiobooks come quickly to the rescue.

Using audiobooks can be an excellent option for the car because they are both engaging and educational. You can easily find them in your children’s favourite stories to keep them good and entertained on those long car rides. For those looking for a little inspiration, here come some of the best audiobooks for kids. 

1 . Matilda by Roald Dahl

The story of ‘Matilda’ is an absolute classic, which is why it’s just delightful that it comes in audiobook form. Sit back and drive in peace as your children listen to the story of the charming bookworm who discovers that she has magical powers. The great thing about Roald Dahl stories is that they are both funny and heartfelt. The story encourages empathy skills and celebrates the power of being different. 

2 . The Worst Witch by Jill Murphy

Sticking on the magic theme, ‘The Worst Witch’ collection is also available in audiobook format. These stories focus on protagonist Mildred Hubble, a witch who is studying at ‘Miss Cackle’s Academy.’ (One great bonus is the excellent narration by actress Gemma Arterton)! Mildred is a pretty clumsy kid which gets her into some sticky situations in terms of her magic. Meet a charming array of characters from Enid Nightshade who loves to play jokes to Midred’s sneaky rival Ethel Hallow. Jill Murphy started writing this book when she was just 15 years old! These stories are highly imaginative and entertaining; perfect for kids aged 7 and over. Magical stories for kids often work to keep them engaged! 

3. The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson 
If you’ve got toddlers, try Julia Donaldson’s fantastic tale ‘The Gruffalo’ in the car. Little kids love the exciting animal characters that the mouse meets while journeying through the woods. The snake, the owl and the fox listen to the mouse's make-believe tales about ‘The Gruffalo’; but is the creature real after all! It’s lovely to take those classic tales that your kids hear at pre-school along in the car. Most of the best books for toddlers can be found in audio form. 

4. The Great Cheese Robbery & Other Stories by Tim Warnes
Another great one for little kids, the audiobook version comes with lots of sound effects and music to listen and read along too. Frightening monsters, missing cheese and cheeky bears; these stories are both fun and easy to follow. Children can look at the beautiful picture books while listening and getting to know the characters. One of these books could really come in handy on your next family day out.

Audiobooks can be the perfect way to keep your kids happy on those long car rides. If you’re planning a road trip, it can be a good plan to get your car serviced first. Your local Vauxhall dealer will allow you to book both Vauxhall and Non-Vauxhall MOT and servicing online. Getting those little maintenance issues up to speed is essential before taking those longer trips.
