Just about every summer learning post will discuss the importance of summer reading. This one will as well! Summer reading is not only fun but yields great benefits for our children. However, to provide a twist, I want to highlight the benefits of audiobooks.
I’m often asked, “Do audiobooks really have much benefit?” My answer: Yes! Yes! Yes! Audiobooks are a great way to boost your child’s literacy skills. Many children don’t have an interest in regular reading, so it makes summer reading a challenge. Audiobooks provide way to have your child to engage with stories in a different way. This allows for the listener’s imagination to step in, picture the scenes, picture the characters, and connect with the story.
Here are my Top 5 benefits for listening to audio books.
Children can listen to audiobooks everywhere. Facilitate your child’s listening by adding an audiobook player to their tablet or phone. Happy Listening!
