If your kids are getting burnt out on screentime, look to a popular audiobook instead. If your family is new to the read-aloud scene, try playing an audiobook for a few minutes during mealtime each day.
Chances are your kids will be begging for more of the story before their plates are cleared.

Top 15 Audible Kids Books
While there are hundreds of fantastic books for children and teens, not all make good audiobooks. In fact, a narrator can make or break a story. If you are an Audible member, however, you can return your book purchase if you dislike a narrator or story.
