Are you packing up the kids for a long car or plane trip in search of warmer weather? In addition to your DVD and video game activity list, why not include a few good audio books?

Audio books are perfect entertainment for a long, or short trip and they offer the option of providing entertainment for the whole family if you pick the right book and are driving.

You can find a great selection of audio books at your local library and/or bookstore.
