Audiobooks for Everyone

Booklist audiobook blogger Mary Burkey has posted a list of family-friendly audiobooks perfect for car trips. For older kids and teens, the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA), a division of the American Library Association, has also posted its list of Amazing Audiobooks for Teens.

It was a running joke in my family that whenever my husband or one of the kids came in while I was listening to an audiobook in the kitchen, the opening to an off-color scene or an impressive string of swears would invariably issue forth from the speakers before I could reach the remote. These lists of family-friendly audiobooks come too late for me, but may be helpful to others.
A young adult audiobook I have recently listened to and liked was the Full Cast production of Airborn by Kenneth Oppel. It’s a good introduction to the steampunk genre for kids, and a rollicking adventure that adults will also enjoy.
