Audiobooks for Kids and Teens : Build a Listening Library!

How many times have we heard: "Reading is fun and fundamental." Listening to good books is fun too and a great way to engage your child in a recreational activity that builds character.

Audiobooks for Children? But of course! These days they always have headphones stuck in their ears anyway. (Mine do!)  Give them something worthwhile to listen to.

Listening Library is associated with Random House, Inc. and has been in business for over half a century. In 1955 they published their first audiobook: Jules Verne's Around the World in 80 Days.  

Follow this excellent lead and example, many book publishers and booksellers began offering audiobooks to book lovers everywhere.  Nowadays, it's very easy to find almost any book in an audio format.  You can build your own listening library filled with audiobooks for Kids and Teens.  Audiobooks encourage children to enjoy listening and could get them to enjoy reading.  Teachers have indicated that audiobooks benefit children who struggle with reading and can improve literacy.
