Thank you to CMBCL supporters who donated to the 2019 Kids’ Books Fundraiser, allowing our libraries to add a new item to our Youth Services collection. Your gifts will purchase 78 Wonderbooks!
This year’s fundraiser will add a new item to the children’s collection and focus on products that combine print and audio.
Playaways and Wonderbooks are pre-loaded audiobooks that give children a boost in reading comprehension and recall, foster a love of reading and expose children to more challenging levels of text.
- 85% of what we learn is learned by listening.
- 70% of kids say they read more after listening to audiobooks.
- Combining print and audio increases recall by 40% over print alone.
- Children can listen and comprehend 2 grade levels above their reading level.
