Reading with your ears

Does your child prefer listening to stories rather than reading books? Why not try digital audiobooks?

“I always emphasize to parents that audiobooks are NOT cheating in any way,” says Children’s Librarian Shelley Harris.

“Knowing how to listen and understand what you hear is a vital skill, and many people find it easier to pick up new vocabulary through hearing it in context rather than decoding it visually. Auditory reading is so beneficial!”
