Favorites for Children Under 10

Need some more gifts ideas? These audio books are favorites for children under 10.

Amelia Bedelia by Peggy Parish is actually a collection of five stories about a housekeeper who has a funny way of thinking. Each story is unique as Amelia goes about her day in her job, and contains puns that make the stories entertaining for adults as well as children.

In Bear Called Paddington by Michael Bond, Paddington Bear had traveled from Peru when the Brown family first met him on Paddington Station. Since then their lives have never been quite the same... for ordinary things become quite extraordinary when a bear called Paddington is involved.

Berenstain Bears by Stan & Jan Berenstain
This was a personal favorite of mine growing up.
It was a family of three -- an overenthusiastic Papa whose high opinion of himself was exceeded only by his ability to do silly things (often placing himself in jeopardy from bees, skunks, low-hanging branches, whales, irate farmers, etc.), a wise, steady Mama with a firm grip on reality, and a bright enterprising little boy cub.

For more than forty years, the Berenstains' delightfully enchanting stories of this trio have charmed children, and now they can enjoy them listening to the authors read the best of their hilarious tales.

House At Pooh Corner by A.A. Milne
If you want a family break from TV and movies, get comfy, close your eyes and let this master storyteller stir the imagination. This latest addition to the Pooh Classics, the 10 unabridged stories in The House at Pooh Corner is a must. On stage and on recordings, Peter Dennis, with the blessings of the Milne estate, has made Milne's world something of a life's work... his intelligent and whimsical readings, meant for adults and children alike, are captivating.

Horrid Henry by Francesca Simon
This audio book contains four hilarious stories with amazing music and sound effects. Henry is dragged to dancing class against his will; vies with Moody Margaret to make the yuckiest Glop!; goes camping in France and tries to be good like Perfect Peter - but not for long.

There are 14 more "Horrid Henry" titles available.

There are other great audio books available. These are the perfect gift for your child that you can listen to with as well. Your child will appreciate listening to these titles, and adults as well.

Happy Holidays!
