One valuable tool that parents can use to help their children develop literacy skills is audiobooks. Research has shown that children who listen to audiobooks can benefit in many ways:
*improve listening and comprehension skills
*learn proper pronunciation of words
*learn to “see” a story by using imagination instead of illustrations
*introduce young children to literature that is too difficult for them to read, like many classics
*enjoy a whole-family activity
