Favorite Audiobooks for Kids

I started listening to books with my son during our car rides to and from school. It was a way to get him interested in books. It was a way to find something he might actually talk to me about. Later it turned into a way for him to get through those drudge-y books he was assigned in school. Even now, as a grown man out on his own, he still loves audiobooks. In order to share this with all of you, I scoured the web for lists of the best audiobooks for kids. Here are the top titles/series. Many of these are available in different formats (CDs, downloads, Playaway cartridges) and with various narrators. Check the catalog to see all the versions available.
