A powerful tool in the acquisition of language.


The combination of text and audio is a powerful tool in the acquisition of language. That is why we have introduced audiobooks, read at a deliberate pace, so that adults can follow along while reading our HiLo books. Learning Ally lists the benefits of text combined with audio as improving skills for decoding each sound in a word; reinforcing letter-sound associations; improving sight word recognition; and developing vocabulary with increased comprehension.

Putting a finger on the text while listening to the audio can improve language comprehension and fluency. Our book/audiobook pairs help emerging readers engage with the content in two modalities…and they’re fun!
