Talking books! As a family of big readers, these are something we haven’t used much over the years (although read-along books with CDs were a blessing when I had a newborn and toddler). I was showing a library patron our junior audiobook collection just before the school holidays and thought I’d give them a go too… my kids love them!

First, we heard a collection of short stories by Morris Gleitzman, Pizza cake : and other funny stories, and we’re currently listening to J.A. Mawter’s So gross, feral and sick! which is as nauseating for me to hear as it is hilarious to my six and eight year old sons. Twelve hours of spew and poo jokes, oh the joy!
