Many books are available as audio books so you can listen to books together as you travel to activities, relatives’ houses, and even while running errands. Since the narrators of audio books use a lot of expression and portray different characters with different accents, you will enjoy using this alternative media in addition to regular reading time. If you cannot find a particular audio book, why not try making your own recording? Perhaps you can share with other families.
