My kids love to listen to audiobooks before bed. In fact, it’s our little tradition that has made for a smoother bedtime routine.
The kids shower, get snuggled in pj’s, and enjoy some quiet playtime in their rooms as they listen to audiobooks before lights out.
This gives a tired mom and dad some time to pick up the house and recharge in silence. I sometimes use this time to read a few chapters in a book for myself. I love this little extra time in our evenings.
Audiobooks have become a favorite and I would say, a necessity, in our home. My kids listen to new books every month and still listen to old favorites. They’ve expanded both their vocabulary and their imaginations, and they appreciate different types of books. Using audiobooks helps us promote a love of books and of reading in our home.
You need to find ways to add audiobooks into your lives!
