Listening book encourages child development
Children spend a lot of time, and increasingly more, with a screen. For example, elementary school students use the television (70%), tablet (51%) and smartphone (47%) at least once a day, while the number of hours spent reading is less than an hour a day. Research shows that audiobooks have a positive impact on children. It helps them understand difficult words and sentences. Regular reading aloud also stimulates cognitive, social-emotional, physical and creative development. Audiobooks stimulate language and imagination.
We believe it is very important for children to further develop their language, imagination and creativity. Our cheerful audiobook fairy tales help with that.
You can download them in the shop. Have fun listening!
