Audiobooks are great for kids to listen to as bedtime stories, or to keep them amused on long car journeys. The best books (and the best narrators) will fire their imaginations and keep them entertained and enthralled. Especially with younger kids, however, it won't just be kids listening. Parents and older siblings are often listening along as well. That's why, in our selection of the best audiobooks for kids, we've tried to make sure they appeal to kids and grownups alike.
Audiobooks are a great way to keep teenagers entertained and informed. Mary Burkey, an expert on kids’ audiobooks, and Robin Whitten, editor and founder of AudioFile magazine, talk us through the wonderful titles that were finalists in this year’s Audie Awards in the ‘young adult’ category.
