Just Add Listening!

Both summer and back-to-school are busy times of year, and sometimes enjoyment reading falls to the bottom of to-do lists for students and teachers alike. Audiobooks are a wonderful way to incorporate books into your day, whether you are catching up on a bestseller, revisiting a classic novel, or simply trying something different. The Ridley High School Library’s selection of 200+ audiobooks is always growing, and we have a fresh batch of books-on-CD to kick off the new school year! Here are a few of my favorites (just click the book title for an audio excerpt and more information):

 

For students with reading challenges, listening can really help to fill in any gaps in comprehension. Skilled narrators use their voices to establish mood, heighten drama, and alert listeners to pivotal plot developments. Audiobooks also play a role in the library’s commitment to diverse literature by offering authentic representations of language and dialogue, and providing a “literacy bridge” for emerging readers. So please consider diversifying your reading with an audiobook from the Ridley High School Library! Happy listening.
