A roundup of 20 amazing Audible books for kids! Kids will love these best audiobooks for kids!
My preschooler does 2-3 hours of independent, screen-free quiet time every day. I shared how to do quiet time for kids and how we worked him up to this in a recent post. It’s one I’m asked about often, I love having it all in one place!
I’ve been an Audible member on and off most of my life. Hello, former English teacher, it felt like a necessity to get through more books to recommend to teenagers faster! But for the past three and a half years, I’ve been a member giving almost all of my credits to my son’s audiobook addiction. It’s one I’m happy to sacrifice to help his brain grow and I get more work time in.
The only problem has been that’s it’s created a second job for me searching for great Audible books for kids to keep up with my son’s love and addiction!
Best Audiobooks for Kids
We’re somewhat picky about the books we purchase and the content we let him listen to. We need it to be age-appropriate and engaging, and sometimes that’s a tricky balance! But after three years of daily audiobook listening, we’ve come up with a bunch of the best audiobooks for kids.
Here are 20 audiobooks my son has loved and listened to multiple times!
This is the book I have to thank for getting my son truly hooked on audiobooks! He fell in love with The Magic Treehouse series and asked to follow Jack and Annie on their adventures every day. It's a great bang for your buck with eight books in one!
This was the gateway audiobook that took my oldest from short stories to longer ones. We were able to listen to his favorite Disney Pixar movies in abridged audiobook format, and it hooked him! We're doing the same with my second. If you have a little one who loves movies and needs to learn how to listen to audiobooks, this is a great place to start!
I had a friend recommend this one and I worried it may be a little old for my 5-year-old. But he's a mature reader, and loved this book so much! He listened to it on repeat and started imaginary playing parts of this book.
The content is a bit more adventurous and graphic, so I'd save this one for older preschoolers and elementary kids.
If you have a kid who loves Star Wars but isn't ready to watch the movies, this storybook collection is perfect! They get a handle on the major characters and pieces of the stories in an age-appropriate book for elementary students.
