For many families, Summer means seeking adventure through travel whether that is in the air or on the road.
Both ways come with a slew of challenges and stressors.
Many times I hear parents scared of taking road trips because they dread the long ride with their children: kids whining, parents tired of the whining with no where to escape for a long time.
Five Summer Road Trip Essentials Worth Bringing
My husband and I love listening to books on tape. It’s been challenging to read them at home with loud kids running around. On road trips, Audible is the perfect way to catch up on our favorite books. When the kids nap, we listen to our books.
Customers can download audiobooks from Audible to access on their iPhone, Android device, Fire tablet, iPod or other mp3 Player. Meaning that the person who isn’t driving can listen to a book on their headphones while the kids are being noisy!
Users can sign up as an Audible Listener, which gives them book credits and access to short programs now playing in Channels each month for a low monthly fee.
