Audio books have been praised as being a positive literacy source for listening and speaking skills, as well as reading comprehension. Young readers find that hearing the story allows them for better understanding of the text, and helps develop their own reading skills. But some audio book sites are limited on materials. Tales2Go is an online site and app for iOs devices (costs about $99.99 for the year), that provides the user with over 2,000 audio books from reputable publishers and book distributors.
“Tales2Go is an award-winning kids’ mobile audiobook service that streams thousands of name-brand titles from leading publishers and storytellers to mobile devices and desktops in the classroom and beyond” (“Tales2Go.” Tales2Go. Tales2Go Inc., 02 Feb 2013. Web. 28 May 2013.). The reason why it is so successful is its simplicity. Just select your title stream from any device and enjoy. They have everything from popular titles, to the classics. And this is not limited to younger or just starting out readers. This will help older already established readers as well.
