I’ve admitted before that I’m not good at reading novels out loud but we really enjoy them so, as a result, we do a lot of audio books in our house.
We love listening to audio books on road trips, during lunch time and randomly throughout the day when we all need a little bit of calm down time.
We started listening to audio book novels when Raeca was 3 years old, it always amazed me at how much she picked up on and how much she enjoyed them.
These are some of our favorite audio books for 3-5 year olds.
