Does your child love to listen while you read a story? We know that reading aloud to a child is one of the best ways to build vocabulary and develop comprehension skills using higher-level books.

If your child would like to hear more stories on tape, check-out the playaways in the library. Playaways are an updated version of books-on-tape. Each playaway comes with headphones that plug into a book cartridge. Students simply plug the headphones into the cartridge, and turn on the device. It's as easy as that!
