Inspire their love for reading

Reading aloud is the foundation for literacy development. Before children can read every word on the page, they are able to listen to the individual sounds that make up each word. As a result, they are building the necessary foundations for literacy.

Reading for Enjoyment

It's important for children to experience reading as a fun and exciting activity. Reading shouldn't feel like a chore, which makes the books you choose extremely important. Vooks offers a streaming library of curated stories, adding new titles weekly!

Developing Vocabulary

One of the first steps in acquiring language is hearing new words in context. Reading aloud takes children beyond their own reading levels and exposes them to words they may not be exposed to when reading independently.

Improving Fluency

Reading aloud makes the invisible act of reading visible. Modeling fluency, expression, and tone provides children with a framework for improving their reading skills. Listening to these nuances demonstrates that there is more to reading than just printed words.

The love of reading starts here.
