Audiobooks Inspire a Love of Stories in All Ages Summer Reading for Busy Families
Summer reading lists are always popular, but most families rarely have time to have dinner together, let alone sit still reading for hours. Luckily, the ever-growing popularity of audiobooks means you don’t have to wait for school to start again for your kids to get back into literature. Here are a few great audiobooks you can introduce to your family this summer. For the Long Road Trip “The Bad Beginning” (A Series of Unfortunate Events) by Lemony Snicket, read by Tim Curry When a terrible fire destroys the Baudelaire mansion, Violet, Klaus, and Sunny find themselves orphans and are sent to live with the terrible Count Olaf. Convinced their awful new guardian is only after their fortune, the Baudelaires must use their intelligence and skills to stick together and (maybe) overcome their sad circumstances. Fans of the Netflix series will love to hear the story that started it
all! Who knew such an unfortunate series could mean fun for the whole family? For Family Bonding “Half Magic” by Edward Eager, read by Words Take Wing A beloved family favorite since it was first published in 1954, “Half Magic” tells the story of siblings Jane, Mark, Katharine, and Martha, who discover a magic wish-granting coin. They soon realize the coin only grants half of what they wish for, and an unplanned vacation to the Sahara, followed by chaos in King Arthur’s court, is just a one of the hilarious misadventures this family must overcome together. For Something Entirely New “The Wild Robot” by Peter Brown, read by Kate Atwater When lonely robot Roz opens her eyes for the first time, she finds she’s trapped on a
wild island. Struggling to survive and befriend the island’s hostile
animal inhabits, Roz must eventually face her mysterious past,
which threatens to tear her home apart. This brand-new book is a stunning tale about the environment, technology, and the wonder of being alive.
These are just a few of the many titles your family can enjoy this summer. Find even more by visiting Audible.com or checking the audiobooks catalogue on iTunes.
June Testimonials Don’t Just Take Our Word for It
“Jon and Beth were excellent to work with. They are smart, explain things very well, were very attentive to my concerns, and a total blast to work with. They made getting up early fun and educational. They empowered me with new insights and exercises to continue the long journey I’ll have getting my legs back in balance after decades of imbalance and escalating symptoms. Thank you, guys, for giving me the tools I’ll need to keep my legs and stride healthy and pain-free.” – Mark H.
“What a great decision I made! I came to the free seminar to hear what Gilbert PT could do for me. I was very impressed and had a good feeling about what they were offering. What a difference! I came to Gilbert unable to stand up straight, walk, or push a shopping cart — and stopping to talk to a friend was out of the question. Standing was extremely painful. Chris and his team took on the challenge and were able to correct my problems. I have never counted to 30 so many times, but that was the magic number. I can stand up straight, stop to talk with friends, walk, and go shopping. Thanks to all my new friends at Gilbert. Life is good again.” – Sherry B.
