Looking for more enriching ways to entertain the kids (and you) on long car trips this holiday season than watching Frozen for the 25th time? We had a lot of long car trips planned last year and I tried audio books as new form of entertainment and everyone – adults and children – loved them. You can download audio books from a service such as iTunes or try a subscription to Audible.com. My school-aged boys especially loved listening to Roald Dahl books (Matilda, James and the Giant Peach, The BFG) but almost any great children’s book now has an audio format.
