They do love to listen to audio books. At least they have that going for them. They have listened to just about every audio book available at the library, and some on librivox too.
We are doing the summer reading program at the library and they are all doing their reading, but not loving it. So, when I saw this Kindle for sale for $30 (with the case), I jumped on it, hoping to spark an interest in one of them.
I then started googling for free children's books for it and found tons of them. I love the wifi aspect where I can search on my computer and "buy" them from amazon, and they "magically" appear on their Kindle in the other room. That keeps them from searching and I can pick and choose what I load.
So far, it is working. Both T and P have read several books on it, and C came home from camp today and already asked if I would load some things for him on there. Why yes, yes, I will!
I'll always love paper books, but if this makes them read more, who am I to balk at technology?
|This book even had pictures every few pages - yay!|
