Country and the Rock2 (640x640)
Some say audio books increase a student’s comprehension level, helps them attain better grades, affords them higher confidence and improves self-esteem.

Every one of her friends has read and is talking about the latest/greatest book. She can’t read. Why not listen to the audio version to help with self-esteem. Now she can join in the conversation.

Maybe listen to Book One of a series in audio to become invested then offer Book Two in print or ebook format. After listening to the first book the reader knows the characters and wants to find out what’s going to happen.

For the younger set visit The child is given the choice to read by themselves or flip the pages while it is read to them. Genius!

The book pictured above is an audiobook, the first in my mid-grade series. You may purchase it at

    I will give struggling readers both versions the print and audio so they can follow along. I have had great success doing this. Kids can then read what their friends are reading and they get to see words in print. Win…Win! I have had Kids go up grade levels in reading by doing this.
