Why Audiobooks?

Here’s a great video on the benefits of listening to audiobooks by students. Need a quick justification for using audio in the classroom? Want to highlight your school library audiobook collection’s importance in literacy learning? Doing an in-service for local educators that will feature resources from your public library? Show this short-and-sweet video from Tales2Go which gives an overview on learning through listening for all ages – the 2:30 minute video does not mention Tales2Go until 1:45. If you are intrigued by Tales2Go’s use with students, check out their Educator’s page for more information.
