Giveaway: 8 Listen-Along Storybooks from Sterling Books

Published: March 11, 2010

Listen-Along Storybooks is a fantastic new program offered by Sterling Books. It’s a website with a combination of audiobooks available as free downloads and/or podcasts that can be listened to as streaming audio, a jokecast, and a section dedicated to poetry. The mastermind behind this fab new feature is Robert Agis. His recordings are crystal clear and voiced with an effective energy that will have listeners of all ages enthralled. The first eight audiobooks available are some of Sterling Books most popular picture books; including Cesar Takes A Break, which we reviewed earlier.

With extreme generosity, Sterling Books has offered up all of the eight books (listed below) for three of our luckiest readers!

  • What a great idea! Books on tape are so cumbersome to keep track of, and this allows you to access the audio anytime/anywhere (assuming you have access to a computer 😉 High-quality, engaging recordings. Nice!

  • Digital recordings are much more user-freindly (and subject to less danger of loss/breakage than tapes and CDs). I’d love to see digital illustrations/slide show to accompany the audio and allow kids to read along with the book on the computer or ipod.

  • What a great idea! Love the website- so simple to navigate and use. Nice selection of books, too.

  • I use mp3 stories and books on my shuffles in my classroom. I find that listening to stories on mp3 increases the students’ vocabulary, high level thinking, and fluency. This website will be a great resource for that.

  • I think this is such an easier way of keeping track of books. Cd’s around the house are constantly lost or broken.

  • An awesome idea! Harkens back to the read-along books that came with a cassette tape.
