    Books on tapes are my life savers! It keeps everyone quiet and we are all learning something new. I go for choices that appeal to all ages. Fairy Tales, Mary Poppins, Wizard of Oz. The voice of the reader makes HUGE difference. We tried one edition of The Secret Garden and my 2-year old just wouldn’t stop talking and making everyone frustrated (we had to give up on audio), but then we got another one read by a famous actress (I don’t remember the name) and he listened to it happily. All 7 disks (not in one day, of course)!

    Great one Eva! Books on tape are awesome! When my kids were younger we listened to phonics cds as well as Multiplication Unplugged which really helped my kids in the math facts department.

    We spent a lot of time in the car when my kids were little. We listened to a lot of music – Kids music. Sometimes it became very repetitive but they loved it. Driving and keeping busy was hard for the child who had motion sickness – for them it was important to keep the audios happening (either music or stories). We did (and still do) a lot of talking while in the car – If could convert some of our homeschool lessons to a discussion in the car, that saved time, other times we played verbal games like making up sentences or stories, or working on memory work.
