The Magic Treehouse series is aimed at early readers. As such, the audio version is best for kids just on the cusp of reading - four and five year olds who can't yet tackle these books on their own. Kids love these stories. The reading is pleasant.
However, these books make an excellent argument for getting Junior his own iPod.... they're mind-numbingly formulaic and represent research in such a simplistic way that it makes my teeth itch. It's like *listening* to an episode of Barney. If you want something the kids AND mom and dad can all agree on, I'd suggest trading up to Dragon Rider.
