I can’t exactly remember how I discovered AudioBooks for Kids but I think they sent me an email a long, long time ago and now I am finally posting! While my kids are not using audio books to any degree, I do think they are a GREAT way to experience books and particularly good for reluctant readers who can follow along with the book. The issue for audio books is often technology. There are plenty of audio books at the library but who has a cassette tape player in their cars these days? I don’t. I don’t even have one in the house save for an ancient children’s toy that is part Karaoke Machine/Part Torture Machine due to said Karaoke Microphone. I pray that this toy has made it to the trash but I am too scared to check the playroom in the basement as it always looks like a tornado hit. Soooo… it’s great that THESE audio books come via iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and Android!
