Lizzie’s favorite Audible books for kids AND moms!

I love reading, but it's hard to find the time to sit down with a book myself, let alone instill a love of books in my kids. Luckily, with Audible, I've found a way to do both!

I spend a lot of time on my feet, away from a couch, a bed, or a comfy chair these days. One of my favorite hobbies before kids used to be curling up with a good book in the evenings with a blanket and some tea. I often reminisce about fun times spent with friends at our Book Club Night when I lived in New York City in my 20s.

When I became a mother, I realized that there just wasn’t a lot of extra time, and I desperately missed reading. A friend told me that she used to put on audible books while she was working out, and I decided to give it a try! I had long commutes to the news stations I worked for, and I decided that would be a great time to listen. I would start each day listening to an audible book in the car, and I was immediately hooked! It was so hard to turn off the book to go into work, most days.

Now that I am a mom, I have continued my love of listening to authors and narrators bring the books to life through my headphones. Not only do I listen in the car, but also while I’m folding laundry and doing mindless chores around the house.

A few years ago, I decided to share my love for listening to books with my oldest daughter, Lola, and she was hooked. I swear it helped her listening comprehension, too! Now both of my older kids enjoy listening to books. Now, they also offer podcasts that are exclusive to audible! There is some seriously great stuff there, including Sesame Street for my baby!

Here are a few of my favorite audio books to enjoy this summer. Best news? They allow you to try audible FREE for 30 days, and that gives you access to 3 books, so you can test it out and see if you like it!

Happy Reading!
