5 Best Audible Audiobooks for Thanksgiving Travel

peter pan1. "Peter Pan" by J. M. Barrie, narrated by Lily Collins

As a childhood favorite book, Peter Pan in the form of audiobooks is one that your creative kid will come to adore. The boy who never grew up is a magical tale that you might have adored in your own younger days. Now actress Lily Collins brings new, youthful energy to Peter's magical adventures - her performance capturing the innocence and wonder of Barrie's original tale. With her dramatic narration, you'll fly along with Peter through Neverland - a place full of magic and adventure; a place where no one gets old. This fairly lengthy audio read is perfect for those mid-range car trips.

the wonderful wizard of oz2. "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" by L. Frank Baum, narrated by Anne Hathaway

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is one of the best-known stories in American culture for over 100 years. You may have already seen this movie on the big screen with your children. But with Hathaway's impressive vocal repertoire, you'll get a totally different experience. There are lessons on courage, intelligence, tenderness, confidence and ambition. You'll be guided through the world of munchkins, winkies, and quadlings; witches and the humbug Oz, where your child will meet new friends such as Dorothy and her little dog Toto.

goodnight moon3. "Goodnight Moon" by Margaret Wise Brown, narrated by Buffy Allen

If your drive would last too many hours, you may probably find the kids will drift off on the way to Thanksgiving destination. Instead of just hoping they'll drift off, you are suggested to pick up a great classic tale that can help them fall asleep instantly. As a good bedtime story, the Goodnight Moon should be your top choice. It's a very nice little bedtime story with very nice illustrations telling  bedtime focused story about a little rabbit that is lulled to sleep surrounded by all that he knows and loves best in the great green room of his house.

the hunger games4. "The Hunger Games" by Suzanne Collins, narrated by Carolyn McCormick

It is not unusual these days to find a book written for the young adult that has appeal to an older audience. The Hunger Games is the book that anyone would enjoy. This cleverly created book is well written with good character development. It's far more about strategy, problem solving, critical thinking, relationship building, and the wisdom, or not, of rebelling and why. These are the common themes that young adults face in the teenage years. Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning?

just so stories5. "The Completed Just So Stories" by Rudyard Kipling, narrated by Johnny Morris

Just So Stories is another excellent and beautifully told story that will thoroughly get you and your children engaged and entertained on a long car ride. It's the complete collection of Rudyard Kipling's classic fables, read by Johnny Morris. You will find stories such as "The Beginning of the Armadillos" and "The Cat That Walked by Himself" filled with creativity, inspiration, and total imagination included in this book. Thanks to the narrator, you'll really feel like sitting around a campfire, listening to him spin yarns about talking animals.
