The Audio Publisher’s Association says that audiobooks promote literacy and “Neuroscience shows that language processing in the brain is the same when reading or listening.  Audiobooks build and enhance vital literacy skills such as fluency, vocabulary, language acquisition, pronunciation, phonemic awareness, and comprehension – skills that often boost reading scores. ” Parents it’s not cheating to use audiobooks.
