We are so excited here! Auditions have begun for Learning to Read: Favorite Fairy Tales! The first female audition will soon be done by Trista Shaye. Once we have our voice actress chosen and contract complete, it will be available for you to listen to.
Once it becomes a finished professional product, it will become available on Amazon, Audible and iTunes. Awesome!
What is an audiobook? As the name suggests, audiobooks are voice recordings of the text of a book that you listen to rather than read. Audiobooks can be exact word-for-word versions of books or abridged versions.
Why buy an audiobook? Learn what makes audiobooks great for your young reader.
1. Audiobooks are super duper EASY.
Use one when you’re on the road or while you cook together. Have your child listen to something magical.
2. Audiobooks build little one’s reading skills
Following along visually while listening will definitely enhance word-recognition ability. Even just listening alone can expand vocabulary skills.
3. Audiobooks allow your child to “read” more difficult books
You child will be able to listen to more complicated topics and better-quality books than he might find at his own level. This exposure strengthens comprehension skills, particularly for children who have reading difficulties.
4. There’s no stigma
Struggling readers are sometimes reluctant to read below their level for fear of being picked on. With audiobooks, nobody has to know what they’re listening to.
5. They’re fun!
Well-done readings give the story a more concrete sense of drama. They make the book come alive! Audiobooks are for everyone. Every age loves listening to audiobooks.
Keep checking! It will be coming soon!
