      Audio books are recordings of the contents of a book provided either on tape, CD or in digital format. Audio
      books or talking books, as they are generally called, are audio recordings of books. Audio books are a great
                                               way to use ‘empty’ time.

                                                                  By Kit Heathcock



   Audio books are becoming more and more popular as people with no time to sit down and read a
book take advantage of iPods and MP3 players to listen to the latest bestseller as they rush through
their daily lives. Where is the place of audio books for kids though, at a time when we are struggling to
promote literacy for all and encourage kids to read?

Audio books can work very well alongside printed books for kids that have grasped the basics of
reading but need to develop vocabulary. They can sit down with the printed book and follow the text as
they listen to it being read on a CD or MP3 download.

Not only does the reading aloud bring the story to life, at a time when slowness of reading skills can
frustrate children when they are trying to make out a plot line, but it means that they can cope with
more complicated vocabulary than they might otherwise be able to.

Hearing a book read aloud as an audio book teaches them the correct pronunciation of words that
might otherwise be hard to work out from the complexities of English spelling.

By listening to the same story over and over as children love to do, they can memorize it and will
suddenly find that they can actually 'read' the printed book with the help of their memory. This soon
translates to real reading as word recognition increases.

Of course if parents have time to read aloud to their children this is invaluable in developing a love of
reading, but today when we are hard-pressed to find the time for more than a quick bed-time story,
audio books give us another way of satisfying our children's demand for more stories and give them
the love of good books and the motivation to learn to read themselves. I don't think that audio books
should replace reading to your children, nothing can be better than snuggling up to Mom or Dad on the
sofa, but they can supplement reading time when Mom or Dad are too busy to sit still!.

Another perfect way to use audio books for kids is on long car journeys. Take along a few favorite
audio books as MP3 downloads and as long as each child has his own MP3 player you can get
through hours of tedious driving with barely a complaint!

I really do recommend that each child should have their own system though. If you expect them to use
the car CD system you'll end up listening to endless squabbles over what to listen to next. Either that
or you'll be screaming with boredom as they repeat the same favorite story for the ninety-ninth time!

The huge range of books available as audio books, from Harry Potter to Roald Dahl, means that there
is something for each age group and endless variety, from the classics like Winnie the Pooh and the
Narnia series to the latest Philip Pullman.

If you want to build up a collection of kids' audio books in an affordable way consider joining an online
audio book club, where for a reasonable monthly fee you can download one or more books every
month, according to your membership plan. Your only problem will be in resisting the enticing books on
offer for adults and heading over to the kids' section!

                              Audio Books – 10 Frequently Asked Questions – Part 2
                                                          By Paton Jackson



 The audio books era is already here. I keep hearing phrases like: Audio book rental, free audio books,
audio book club, audio books on CD, online audio book rental services etc.

Here are the next five frequently asked questions about audio books (and the answers of course):

6. What kinds of audio books do you recommend to listen to? Listen to audio books that you would
read. Meaning, if you like thrillers, listen to thriller audio books, if you are looking for children books, get
children audio books etc.

Yet, I suggest you get to know more other successful audio books kinds such as language tutorials and
motivation audio books.

7. Are the old fashioned books going to disappear? I don’t think so. In fact, I still prefer reading books
before I’m going to sleep. The experience is a different one, and some people still prefer the old books.
Yet, I believe that the reading habits of most of the world’s population will change in the next century
thanks to audio books.

8. Can I find any book in an audio book format? Unfortunately not any book could be found as an
audio book. Yet, almost any new book and any bestseller from the last century are getting published as
an audio book. Most of the old books could be found in the format of books on tape and the new ones
as downloadable audio books and audio books on CD.

9. How can I listen to downloadable audio books? You could listen to downloadable audio books
using a media player on your desk top or your note book computer. However, most people use audio
players like iPod to listen to downloadable audio books.

10. Where should I get my audio books? The best place to get audio books from would be one of the
online audio book services.
