Last week was vacation time for me and my family.
My husband and I zipped along the highway to central Wisconsin with two kids and two grandparents sharing the back seats. Grandma brought along two new books for the kids, but my kids LOVE new stories and by the time we'd passed through Chicago all the grown ups were sick and tired of the limited reading selection.
What to do?
Overdrive to the rescue! With a few taps on my phone, we had access to the library's Overdrive account with lots of wonderful audio books just for kids. Winnie the Pooh
saved the day! We could just as easily have listened to Hi Fly Guy
by Tedd Arnold, Knuffle Bunny
by Mo Willems, Penny and Her Song
by Kevin Henkes, or Bless This Mouse
by Lois Lowry. There were plenty of choices for our preschool passengers. The kids and adults rode happily for the rest of the trip.
