"Who doesn’t love listening to a story? The audiobook recreates the loving act of oral story telling - the warmth of company, the effortless drift into another world while safe in one’s own.

There’s a special delight for children in listening to audiobooks, due to the ease of following a story without having to confront any difficulty in reading. This is so important for inspiring a love of stories, and eventually the habit of reading stories, an activity that enriches our imagination, vocabulary, problem solving and creativity for all our lives."

Other books coming soon!

A new title will be announced each month in our dedicated audio book newsletter.
