Audiobooks, sound books and the like are a great choice for children of a variety of reading levels, and lend themselves to all sorts of situations.

Wherever, whenever

One of the best reasons to pick a children's audiobook is that they're really versatile. The most obvious benefit of audio CDs for kids is their ability to get rid of boredom and are-we-there-yet's during long car journeys. A big, engrossing book can make the hours fly by! They're also good for popping on at bedtime for drifting off to sleep to, especially after a busy and tiring day at school.

Skill-boosting

Audio stories for kids will improve children's vocabularies and literacy skills – just because they're not reading doesn't mean the words, sentences and paragraphs aren't working their educational magic. That's ignoring all of the information that books convey to kids about the world too.
