There's information out there on how to use transportation time wisely. Here's a brief list of some Web sites.
A series of dramatized classics produced by Focus on the Family and available via radio broadcast or for purchase on CD and audiotape. Features include classic fiction, mystery, adventure and biography; most have Christian themes ("The Hiding Place") or values-oriented themes ("Anne of Green Gables.") Check out www.radiotheatre.org.
Search "Young Readers" for children's books on tapes at www.booksontape.com. Few are specifically spiritual, but you can find many timeless classics here.
This interfaith site, www.spiritualparenting.com, offers information and support relating to "raising kind, honorable children who remain connected to their spirits and their families." Hosted by Mimi Doe, author of "10 Principles for Spiritual Parenting" and "Nurturing Your Teenager's Soul." Visitors can sign up for free monthly updates and connect with others in Spiritual Parenting Groups.
This Christian site at www.heritagebuilders.com/ provides ideas for passing along a spiritual heritage to children.
This secular site, www.momsminivan.com/articles.html, is oriented more toward longer road trips, but it's full of ideas for ways to engage kids on the road. Some of the ideas, such as keeping a travel journal, could be modified with a spiritual angle.
Games you can play in the car with your children may be found at www.activitiesforkids.com.
