Listening to audiobooks is a great way to spend quality time with family. Audiobooks aren’t only for special occasions like vacations and holidays – although they’re fun to listen to together on a road trip – they’re great for time on the weekends or even a set time every day! Setting aside some time to be with family, while playing board games or just sitting around with friends and family while listening to a story is a nice change from watching TV or playing video games. It really is a wonderful thing to do with the entire family, especially those reluctant readers and/or those with dyslexia or other learning disabilities.
Studies have shown that there is definite value in listening to audiobooks. Here is a link to one recent article on the impact of audiobooks on improving literacy: http://www.booklistreader.com/
