Travelling with kids – even if it is a short duration is a tough task. They need to keep their busy minds occupied. I often travel with a small ‘busy-bag’ in my handbag to keep my daughter busy when we are on road travel or even a flight journey. Books are of course, a great companion but I am often concerned about her eyesight as kids tend to hold the books too close to their eyes, in a moving car. And that’s where audiobooks come as a great alternative!
