7 Audio Programs Kids Will Love!

As a kid, I have a vivid memory of carrying around my little, red, Sony tape recorder, listening to books on tape and radio theater programs. I loved it. I would clean my whole bedroom while listening to stories.

Times have changed. There are tons of ways to access audio story times and programs for kids.

Typically audiobooks have been used with second language learners, those with learning disabilities, and non-readers but they are actually beneficial to those who are average and gifted as well. podcast-1920x1080

Listening to audio rather then watching a video is beneficial as it allows kids to focus on auditory learning skills. Instead of total immersion, they can use their imagination to picture what is being described to them. They learn to critically think in order to interpret context clues.

Audio stories and podcasts are also great for the whole family to listen to together. They can even make road trips more interesting.

Here are a few podcasts that are great for kids. Check them out!

  3. I've never had the chance to listen to audio books as a child. I could see the benefits of having them, especially since my oldest has ADHD and refuses to pick up an actual book to read because he's too busy to sit still.
  4. love it! i'm a fan of anything that gets kids motivated to read and learn more. I'm curious about the superman story for myself...lol.
