Children who are learning to read can get a boost by checking out picture books that include a soundtrack.
The Read-Along Books include a disc to use with a CD player and the Talking Books have an MP3 player built right into them.
Kids can follow along as they listen to the story being read aloud. These books are fun for preschoolers, too!
