How Audiobooks Promotes Literacy

Posted June 27, 2015 by Jennifer in JIAM | | 4 Comments

Still not sure about audiobooks? How about experiencing them with your children. After visiting the Harry Potter World in Orlando my 9-year-old son is all about starting the books. I’m thinking about checking out the audio cds from the library for us to listen to while we follow along in the books. And it looks like this could be a great thing.

Think about it. We read aloud to children at a young age so why not introduce them to audiobooks at a young age as well?

My name is Jennifer (not Jen!) and I live in the South. I coexist with my husband of 15 years, our 11-year-old son and two cats. I'm finishing my BA in English this Spring (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not touch anything labeled "classic" but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my courses. While I hated to read growing up I am now avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction with my favorite (at least to date) genres include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly paranormal from authors I read in the adult genre but I'm explaining after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in my college courses).

    If you haven’t listened to the Harry Potter books on audio, you’re in for a treat – Jim Dale is excellent. These were the first audiobooks I ever listened to and still the best, IMHO.
