Audiobooks And Literacy

Engagement with audiobooks can benefit children and young people’s reading skills and enjoyment, as well as their mental wellbeing and emotional intelligence, according to this review by the National Literacy Trust.

The review identified how audiobooks can widen children’s access to literature. Not only are audiobooks easy and convenient to access via digital devices, but children are able to access a broader range of texts. They are also able to access more of a book than reading alone as the listening experience deepens their understanding of tone and pronunciation and exposes them to different accents and dialects.
