This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Audible. The opinions and text are all mine.
This summer the one thing I don’t want to hear my kids say is “I’m bored!”. There are many ways that kids also fall behind during summer when it comes to things like reading. I really want to encourage our girls to read more and this summer I have a fun new way to get them excited about books with Audible. Audible is the leader is digital spoken books and it’s an exciting and fun way to make books come alive this summer and one way I hope to engage our girls in a fun and exciting new way.

After trying out Audible for the last week with my girls I have found them talking about the books that we’ve read and I found it’s a great way to get the whole family involved in reading. Plus the stories are really fun, my kids keep talking about their favorite book so far Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.
