I can’t stop looking up my old favourites to share with my daughter. And this series about everyone’s favourite vampire bunny by Deborah and James Howe is no exception.
Even though it’s meant for slightly older kids (perhaps age 8 to 12), my almost five year old still really enjoyed these books! True, some of the jokes in this funny, slightly spooky series went over her head, but I definitely loved re-listening with her.
While I could find the first collection at my local library, I eventually bought the second collection through Audible. Victor Garber is wonderful as the narrator in the first six books. I’d say the seventh book that doesn’t quite live up to the earlier works, but overall, still worth checking out the series.
Got older kids who would enjoy a serialized mystery story? Performed by kids? Check out this award-winning free podcast! It’s about an Indian-American boy named Mars Patel and his misfit band of buddies who go on the hunt for their missing friends. (Stranger Things anyone?)
I can already envision listening to this when my girls are older, maybe as we take a nice long family road trip somewhere. The recommended age is 8 to 12, so we have a few years, but I even enjoyed listening to it by myself!
I definitely read these when I was a kid!
If you’re into mystery, then check out the Nate the Great series of books by Marjorie Weinman Sharmat, about a pint-size version of Sherlock Holmes.
I introduced them to my daughter at age 4, and they have been a big hit. We love the weird character of Rosamond and her four cats! The audiobooks are narrated by John Lavelle, who does a great job with all the voices.
There are four collections, each containing 4 to 8 stories. I could find most of the volumes through our library.
