Have you heard of this amazing service yet? It's a digital audiobook company owned by Amazon.

'Experience stories like never before with incredible voices performing the world's largest selection of audiobooks and premium spoken-word content. Perfect for driving, commuting, walking or just about anywhere else.'

If you're a family of avid readers like us, then take a look at Audible!  Whether you're driving in the car, taking the train or even exercising in the gym, why not keep your hobby alive by listening to your favourite book without even having to sit down!

At present Audible is running a fantastic offer of 50% membership discount, just £3.99 per month for the first three months!

As a Home Educating family we often have to cram lots into our day from covering our core subjects in the morning, having lunch and then heading off to workshops or the woods in the afternoon, then back in time for dinner. Audiobooks from Audible are perfect for the kiddies to practise their listening skills whilst having lunch, during some free play or having an Art lesson around the kitchen table. A great feature of this service is that you can pause whenever you need to and it will save that place until you're ready to start listening again. Even if you swap device!

Perfect for children

What are the benefits of listening to audiobooks?

Whether you have a reluctant reader, want to use audiobooks as a learning aid for second-language learning or for children with special needs, Audio books are proven to help all children and adults alike, to enjoy books, by bringing their favourite story to life. Audiobooks read by their own author give that extra special touch and the kiddies find it much more exciting to hear how the authors, themselves, express the story orally.

There are so many skills children gain from listening to their favourite stories through audio. Not only does it help them with their listening skills and attention span but it helps them see how the words can be brought to life when listening to someone reading their favourite story in such a lively, expressive way.

Perfect for You

Making time for yourself and your own hobbies!

As Home Ed mothers we often forget about ourselves as we are so engrossed in teaching, cooking, cleaning etc. It's easier to get the kiddies into bed at the end of the day and all you want to do yourself is fall asleep too.

Many of you, including myself, have a list of books that we'd like to get through, but it's not often easy squeezing in this quiet time into the hectic agenda. So why not become a member of  Audible and put your feet up at the end of a busy day to wind down with a cuppa, listening to a book. The great thing about this service is that even if you unsubscribe to the service, your books are still yours to keep, so you can listen to them at your own pace, in your own time.
