As a mother of 2 young children audio books for children are a great
learning tool. They foster the joy of reading for smaller children that may not be able to read yet. They also give
us an occasional break from physically reading a book to your child. Even older children that might not be avid
readers can enjoy listening to an exciting audio book. A child audio book also fosters other skills such as
listening and building a vocabulary. For those that may have difficulty learning to read, following along with an
audio book will be a great help.

excitement and dramatization that a parent may not be able to duplicate. An audio book for a child is also a great
idea for children as a bedtime story. Many times my children want me to read more books to them than I have the
time or energy for. Of course it is no substitute for a parent reading a story to the child, but the right
selection can provide a calming atmosphere conducive to falling to sleep.
