Top 10 audiobooks for young learners:

From Preschool to Stage 2

With holidays over and back to school time just around the corner, shares two of their top ten lists for young learners.

The lists, which include classics like Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland to Peter Pan and Matilda, are a great way for young learners to listen to curriculum content together as a family, or before they go to sleep, when little eyes are tired after a big day of school.

Books being read aloud can also develop listening skills and help young children learn punctuation, enunciation, and emphasis. Not only that but, younger children can understand language above their reading age and learn new words and advanced constructs when listening to a story.
