For young members, we can help with their fear of the printed word and provide access to books that are appropriate to intellectual age rather than reading age. Here are just some of the wonderful things our members have told us:
'We shall always be grateful to you as an organisation for opening doors, particularly in English which we never thought would be opened.'
'Pupils developed listening skills and developed new interest in reading.'
'My son has benefited greatly from audiobooks ... as there are so many titles to choose, he has acquired a great wealth of words and knowledge.'
'Since Michael is dyslexic he puts most of his energy into 'reading' books rather than listening to what he is reading and so limited knowledge is retained. Audiobooks got round this problem.'
'Jack has become better at listening and then talking about the [audiobooks]. He is more active in the classroom and contributing to his subjects.'
'He has been able to access age appropriate material without being dependent on an adult. He can choose when and for how long to listen.'
'The greatest improvement is Tom's love of listening to stories, particularly from the website. He is listening all the time and learning to love books.'
'Thank you for sending me a copy of ... 'Of Mice and Men' for my Year 10 GCSE group ... The quality of reading and the background music is first class. There is no way that I could have read it in the correct American accent, or created an authentic mood like the recording has done.'
'… out of the 365,394 students who took English Literature, Chris was one of the top five! ... We have to say a big thank-you to Listening Books for all the help and assistance you have given him over the years.'
'Thanks again from a grateful parent.'
'Becky got 5 in her SATs for Year 6 listening and speaking. This is due to the amount of audio she listens to.'
