Don't get me wrong, I can't think of anything better than the feel of a book held in my hands. The scent of ink and paper and the excitement of turning the page to find out how it all happens. But sometimes, listening to a your favorite books is just as exciting! Great for road trips, or even back-and-forth-to-school trips there is just something about hearing a book, that's like being read a bedtime story all the time.
That's why this week I would like to bring to attention a series of books, read by the author that are just that, great bedtime stories at any hour!
The Magic Tree House series by Mary Pope Osborne is one of my favorites for little time-travelers, filled to the brim with every kind of adventure any child could dream of going on. A recent trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, reminded me of one of my favorites, The Knight at Dawn...
... in which the main characters Annie and Jack travel to a fairy tale castle where they learn all about armor, feasts and even find a secret passage! The audio version of these stories are divided up in books 1-8 and 9-16, with each set lasting almost six hours (amazing!).
So, why not mix it up and experience your favorite stories in a whole new way?
Who knows what wonderful characters your imagination may dream up to go along with each tale (knights in shining armor anyone?).
