Audiobooks: Getting kids to listen
That's what Parenting magazine and audiblekids.com are hoping.
The two have partnered in an effort to turn kids on to books. Parenting will make recommendations and carry promotions in the magazine, audiblekids.com will provide the downloadable books.
On the Web site, you can find books by subject, age and grade level. The site even hopes to provide books that mom might listen to in the rare moments when she is alone.
I hope it works. Anything that inspires kids to read is a good thing. But I am not sure the reading shouldn't come first and then the listening.
Let's hear from teachers. What do you think?
