When Gavin was younger, finding a way to keep his occupied and distracted in the car so he wouldn’t fuss or make a nuisance of himself in the car was always a challenge… Until I discovered Thomas and Friends audiobooks. They work so well with Gavin that I highly recommend it. It doesn’t have to be Thomas, it can be a story about any of your child’s favourite characters. At Audible, the Thomas and Friends audiobooks cost about 3-7 pounds (depending on whether you have membership or not) which I reckon is a very affordable price for the hours of peace it brings.
Gavin’s already got Volume 1, 2, 3 and The Great Discovery in his collection, however, there are only so many times you can play four CDs before they start to get a little stale and new material is in order. I figured that they would have made some new recordings by now and I was right. They now have an additional two titles out – “Percy the Small Engine and Other Stories” and “The Little Old Engine and Other Stories”.
By the time Gavin gets sick of these two titles, the first four CDs will be as good as new and we’ll be able to cycle back to them. Hopefully by then they’ll also have more new recordings, or perhaps Gavin will move on to other stories.
