The Power of Voice

Father reads to daughter more than one thousand nights. What a lovely story from the NYT by Michael Winerip: A Father-Daughter Bond, Page by Page. Winerip knows about great books for kids – he’s the author of the Adam Canfield series – ably translated into audio, read byPatrick Lawlor. Thanks for this heart-warming story, Michael!

  1. The audiobook publishers association (APA) published in 2008 a fascinating article which explained that audiobooks are bucking the economic trend and the rest of the publishing industry. This heartwarming post confirms it. Long live audiobooks!

    Rachel shared this article with me, Mary….brought a tear to my eye as I remembered all those nights reading to my girls. I am thankful I was “allowed” to read with them well into middle school. Now we try to read at least one book each summer together…not out loud but it is a shared bond.
