There’s nothing like listening to stories as a family. Libby, the leading library reading app by OverDrive, has curated a collection of audiobooks the whole family can experience together. Best of all bedtime stories may help lull your little ones to sleep.
Families can dive into titles like J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and Madeleine L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time before watching the films or jump into the first chapter of a series like Karina Yan Glaser’s The Vanderbeekers of 141st Street.
The full 38-title collection is viewable here and also includes the audiobooks below:
- Pax by Sara Pennypacker
- The Wild Robot by Peter Brown
- Other Words for Home by Jasmine Warga
- Magic Marks the Spot by Caroline Carlson
- Fortunately, the Milk by Neil Gaiman
- How to Train Your Dragon by Cressida Cowell
