Travel and Books on Tape
We have found that traveling is much easier if you take a book on tape. You also have a captive audience because they have nowhere else to go. I just make sure that I select books that most of the group will enjoy. They should be full of humor and have an excellent reader. Some of our favorites are books by Eoin Colfer, the Harry Potter Series, Roald Dahl, and The Spiderwick Chronicles. These are all read well, often with someone using different voices for different characters. Still, most any book is good to listen to if you are traveling. Amazingly, while the book is playing you will cease hearing things like "Are we there yet?” or “How much longer?” Then at the end of the day you have not only covered miles but created memories of conjoined laughter.
