The Benefits Of Audiobooks For Kids And Why They Inspire Even The Most Reluctant Reader

My Baba's Editor Ellie Thompson welcomes guests Pinky Laing, Head of Partnerships for Tonies UK and Emily Best, Knowledge and Research Manager at the National Literacy Trust to Parental Control to discuss the benefits of audio for children.

Pinky and Emily team up to tell us about this month's launch of the Tonies' Schools and Nurseries Education initiative, supporting teachers to help children learn through the power of audio, with research commissioned from the National Literacy Trust.

This podcast episode explores how audiobooks offer a huge range of educational and wellbeing benefits, as well as how useful they are in motivating struggling or reluctant readers to engage in the world of literature.
