Audio Books Available

We have a collection of audio books available in the media center. Audio books can:

  • Introduce students to books above their reading level
  • Model good interpretive reading
  • Teach critical listening
  • Highlight the humor in books
  • Introduce new genres that students might not otherwise consider
  • Introduce new vocabulary or difficult proper names or locales
  • Provide a read-aloud model

Parents need to come in and check out these books for their children. Each book is accompanied by the book and you should encourage your child to follow along as they listen.
