In the car, on the treadmill, at the bus stop, or under a tree: The Association of American Publishers (AAP) wants to catch you listening.
June is National Get Caught Listening Month, when audio books —”books for the ears” — are stacked up in the national spotlight and bibliophiles across America share their love of the medium.
For parents on the go or professionals seeking to slow down and soothe stress, an audio book is a portable pastime that suits any schedule.
Sharing the literary world with your children — from Frog and Toad to Anne of Green Gables — can help deepen your bond, open the pathways of communication, and spark a lifelong love of books in new readers.
Accordingly, listening to the lilt and lyricism of the spoken word can help boost your child’s reading scores: The AAP cites a study by The Milken Foundation which underlines how educational programs that “included the use of audiobooks improved children’s reading proficiency more than programs that did not use them.”
Children’s Book Guide Elizabeth Kennedy also applauds the medium, pointing out that audio books benefit children in myriad ways, from helping to build vocabulary to honing comprehension and listening skills.
