Audiobooks We Love

“Books on tape stock a child’s mind with the sounds of thousands of words.” Bauer, Susan Wise (2009). The Well-Trained Mind: A Guide to Classical Education at Home (Third Edition) (p. 32). W. W. Norton & Company. Kindle Edition.

cartoon-microphoneWe have added audiobooks to our daily routine as they are a great way to introduce books and build vocabulary. While we are listening to these books we are usually crocheting, doing art, or just playing a board game. I do not “quiz” her on what we are listening to however, I do remind her to listen and will occasionally ask her questions later on to see if she was able to follow along. She is 5 and I know it’s hard to listen to long stretches of reading, so it really is no big deal. Besides, we will read the books again later.
