Be sure that there is only one audio book on the player so the child can easily find the correct file.

Variations and Extensions


Make Your Own

If an audio book version of a book is not already available, you can record one yourself for use in your own classroom. Be sure to let the child know when to turn the page by ringing a bell or with some other signal. Audacity is one of several free audio editing programs available to use. If possible, you could even have students from your class do the voices for some of the characters.
