Quick Listens

Monday, June 26, 2006

These picks are perfect for a short car ride. Each lasts less than an hour, and listeners of all ages will enjoy them.

"Love That Dog" by Sharon Creech. Read by Scott Wolf.

"The Mercy Watson Collection" by Kate DiCamillo. Read by Ron McLarty.

"The Twits" by Roald Dahl. Read by Simon Callow.

"Stink and the Incredible Super-Galactic Jawbreaker" by Megan McDonald. Read by Nancy Cartwright.

Still can't decide?

Most public libraries have audio books -- sometimes hundreds of titles.

The Web site http://www.audiowizard.randomhouse.com suggests books (Random House titles only) based on information you provide, such as who's going to be listening, what kinds of books you enjoy and how long your trip is.
