Immersion Reading With Audible

We recently discovered the fun and learning of Audible and Amazon together. Specifically Immersion Reading, where your child can read a book and listen at the same time while audible highlights the words. It is giving my child a confidence in reading that he didn’t know he could have by boosting his comprehension and retention- making books come alive! Check out how to add Audible narration HERE on Amazon. Immersion Reading is specifically geared to those with reading challenges like dyslexia. Basically, you are combining the best of two worlds – a Kindle ebook and an Audible audiobook to give your child a richer reading experience.

If you have a beginning reader, a struggling reader, a child with a reading challenge, or just want to see them improve here are some facts you should know about reading while listening that will give you an idea of all the benefits…

85% of what we learn is by listening

Reading while listening improves comprehension by 76%

Students can listen and comprehend 2 grade levels above their reading level

Listening while you read improves reading accuracy by 52%

Want to give it a try too? Here is what you do….

Step 1-Head to Amazon and choose a book, there are a ton of great choices. Make sure you check off If you already have the book move on to step 2…

Step 2-Add the audio companion to the book, you can do this right in the Amazon store.

Step 3- Switch between book, listening to the narration, or read and listen at the same time.

You can also sync your book and narration so that no matter what device they pick up to read with- smart phone, computer, or tablet they can pick up where they left off.

Right now Amazon has over 200 kids titles geared for ages 6-12 with the read-aloud feature that is deeply discounted for a limited time so you want to take advantage of the deals ASAP! We found a lot that we put immediately on our list, here are our top 10

  1. Diary of a Wimpy Kid

  2. Frindle

  3. The Tale of Despereaux

  4. Space Taxi

  5. The BFG

  6. Hatchet

  7. Charlotte’s Web

  8. Holes

  9. James and the Giant Peach

  10. The Indian in The Cupboard

After we downloaded a couple books on the list and the Audible narration he dove right into reading and listening and he was hooked on this new experience! He started out with Diary of a Wimpy Kid and I loved that he sat and devoured almost an hour of a book before moving.

Check it out today and get a 30 day free trial that comes with a free download! I think in those 30 days you will be amazed at the improvement in your child’s reading comprehension, fluency, and accuracy-even with the most reluctant of readers. After that it is just $14.95 a month, definitely worth it!
