Parents and other caregivers are always looking for ways to make learning fun and engaging for the children in their care. Thanks to a new offering from York County Public Library, they won't need to look far!
VOX Books are the world’s first all-in-one read-along: readers can listen to the book while they read through it. VOX Books don’t require CDs, tapes, batteries, devices, or internet access; just press a button and you’re listening and reading! VOX Books can also be used with or without headphones, making them perfect for both solo and group enjoyment.
VOX Books have won awards from parents’ groups, including the 2021 National Parenting Product Award in their Best Books for Kids and Families category, and a 2021 Mom’s Choice Award. A recent review in School Library Journal noted that “Narrators are lively and will keep readers engaged. Educators can use VOX Books to help early or struggling readers learn to pronounce words, hold a book, and turn pages, and practice tracking text from left to right. This is a valuable tool not only for libraries but also for teachers to use in the classroom and for parents to use at home.”
York County Public Library's VOX Books are located in the Tabb Youth Services Department across the aisle from the DVDs. The collection includes 107 VOX picture books, including many English/Spanish, English/Mandarin Chinese, and Spanish titles. Patrons can check out two VOX Books at a time for two weeks with no renewals. Holds can be placed on VOX books through the library catalog. Use the direct link to the collection, or search the catalog by "Series" in the "All Fields" dropdown and type "Vox books" in the search box.
