As a parent I sometimes struggle with balancing screen time with book time. Kids seem to naturally gravitate to the screens in their lives. So I love it when I find something that can bridge this gap! The Read-Along Collection on the Libby App solves this on-going dilemma.
The Derby Public Library has over 400 Read-Along picture and early reader books ready for you to borrow. Each book is read aloud to your child, pages automatically turning, and the words are highlighted as they are said. Even for pre-readers, these help develop those literacy skills that will help them thrive in school.
Plus they are fun! To further entice your kiddo, some of their favorite television and movie characters can be found: Dora the Explorer, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Blaze, Paw Patrol, and more!
To find these books:
- Open the Libby App, scroll down a bit
- Click on Explore
- Click on Guide: Kids, scroll down some more
- Click Read-Alongs
From there employ the filters to find just the perfect title, even non-fiction is available. So for those times you can’t make it into the library to pick up new books, long road trips, or when you just need 5 whole minutes of peace, Read-Alongs are here to save the day!
