There's nothing quite like holding and reading a bound book, but audiobooks offer a variety of additional benefits.
Not only do audiobooks help expand vocabulary and fluency, they can increase reading accuracy by 58% and reading comprehension by 76%.
Listening is our first language skill, and 85% of what we learn, we learn by listening. Combining print and audiobooks can help increase recall by as much as 40%.
Whether you're short on time or just have difficulty focusing on the written page, audiobooks have you covered! Listen to them on the way to and from work, while you're doing chores or running errands, while at the gym...the possibilities for enjoying your favorite books are endless.
Whether it's attention difficulties, dyslexia, vision concerns, or any other reading impairment, audiobooks offer an alternative to the traditional reading experience and allow everyone to enjoy a good book.
