{this moment}

{this moment} is a Friday ritual inspired by one of my favorite bloggers ~ Soulemama.  In her perfect words:

. . . . . . . . .

“A single photo – no words  – capturing a moment from the week.  A simple, special, extraordinary moment.  A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.  If you’re inspired to do the same, leave a link to your ‘moment’ in the comments for all to find and see.”

Audiobooks My Kids Love

We love books around our house. Picture books, chapter books, read aloud books, and audiobooks.
I wanted to share a few of our favorite children’s audiobooks. My girls, who are 7 and 4 years old, will listen to these stories time and time again. And here’s the clincher – so will I!
Usually the audiobooks come out when momma just has to get some chores done, which means I will often be listening to them too. And I guess I’m kind of picky about audiobooks. My kids would love to sit around listening to Magic Tree House stories all day long, but not I! So here are a few of our favorites that pass both the kid test, AND the momma test.
These are all great stories narrated by fabulous readers. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

   

1. Where the Mountain Meets The Moon, written by Grace Lin, narrated by Janet Song  
 2. How to Train Your Dragon, written by Cressida Cowell, narrated by David Tennant… and all the others in this series!

  
3. A Bear Called Paddington, written by Michael Bond, narrated by Stephen Fry

 

4. Winnie-the-Pooh, written by A.A. Milne, narrated by Peter Dennis
  
5. Rapunzel and Other Stories (including The Tinder Box, The Frog Prince & Dick Whittington), released by AudioGO Ltd, narrated by Tamsin Greig & Stephen Mangan

  

Happy Listening!
