A few months ago, Brooklyn Public Library added a very special set of books called read-along books to our picture books collection. These are not your average books. Read-along books come complete with a charged VOX audio playback device that includes a headphone jack, external speaker, play/pause button, volume controls, page-turning controls, rechargeable battery, and removable AC adapter. These books can read to you!

Check them out:


"The permanently attached VOX Reader transforms an ordinary print book into an all-in-one read-along. There's no need for computers, tablets or CDs. Children simply push a button to listen and read"--Publisher's Website.


These read-along books are a great way to keep kids engaged and busy without resorting to screen time. Think: long road trips or a way to buy 5 minutes of quiet time for Mom, Dad, or caregiver. They are also equally great for new readers to practice reading along with the recording.
