    The Gruffalo has become one of the most-loved children's characters of all time and this 10-CD collection brings him, and many of his equally brilliant friends from Julia Donaldson's collection of books, to life in audio format.

    Perfect for long journeys and for keeping children entertained whatever the weather, among those delivering the soothing, rhyming stories are Imelda Staunton, Alexander Armstrong and even Julia Donaldson herself!

    A Squash and a Squeeze is a charming story; while Room on the Broom is hilarious; and The Snail and the Whale is quite rightly regarded as a children's classic. There is even The Gruffalo Song and Other Songs included, a CD which contains some of Julia's very own fun-filled action songs for children aged 3 and over.

    CDs in this collection:
    What the Ladybird Heard, Charlie Cook's Favourite Book, The Troll, The Snail and the Whale, Room on the Broom, The Smartest Giant, A Squash and a Squeeze, The Gruffalo's Song, The Gruffalo's Child and The Gruffalo.

Audiobooks, sound books and the like are a great choice for children of a variety of reading levels, and lend themselves to all sorts of situations.

Wherever, whenever

One of the best reasons to pick a children's audiobook is that they're really versatile. The most obvious benefit of audio CDs for kids is their ability to get rid of boredom and are-we-there-yet's during long car journeys. A big, engrossing book can make the hours fly by! They're also good for popping on at bedtime for drifting off to sleep to, especially after a busy and tiring day at school.

Skill-boosting

Audio stories for kids will improve children's vocabularies and literacy skills – just because they're not reading doesn't mean the words, sentences and paragraphs aren't working their educational magic. That's ignoring all of the information that books convey to kids about the world too.
