Why not try a podcast?

There are so many wonderful options from science, to music, to stories!

It's a great way to wind down at the end of the day or spend some time together.

Kids Listen is a great resource to explore a variety of Podcasts.

Or check out School Library Journal's article From Nonsense to Science: Top Podcasts
