Benefits of Audio Books for Children

[Sponsored Review]

When I was young, my parents bought me a series of story books that come with cassette tapes. Oh yes, speaking of those good old days, when cassette recorder was still available! Nowadays, instead of cassette tapes, we have audio books in digital form! What are the benefits of audio books for children?

1. Improve fluency and pronunciation
I admit that I mispronounce words at time! When the children listen to the audio books, they learn to read aloud fluently with proper pronunciation.

2. Develop varied styles of reading
Different narrators have different style of reading, children can learn to be more expressive when they read aloud or when they speak.

3. Enhance the multi-sensory experience
In addition to the pictures, the audio helps to enhance the children's reading experience with music and sound effect.

Here are some Scholastic titles that come with CD, my children enjoy reading these books and listening to the CD that come with the books!

Well, with no jersey, and being late in the day, Willbee was so cold he couldn't fly away. Willbee the bumblebee is so embarrassed when he realizes his stripy jumper has caught on a rose thorn and completely unraveled...
