Excellent Interactive Learning for Children

JOYCE of WESTERFLOYCE was a delightful rhyming children's story about a little girl named Joyce who had really loud belches. It was so cute that I have a smile and am giggling as I write this review. I loved it.

This audiobook was especially good as it was interactive by offering suggestions of things a child may do while listening and learning at the same time. It mentioned various activities that a parent or caregiver could oversee so as to give a child full advantage of learning from an audiobook. It also repeated specific words multiple times and mentions that when a word is said x number of times then it is more likely to be remembered. At the end, the book has a glossary of words with their definitions.

MATTHEW W. GRANT is an educator and is experienced in communication therefore one really can't go wrong with this audiobook. I can see many occasions where this would be a great teaching/learning tool. I think this is a step forward in teaching and using audiobooks to a higher advantage.

MARY CATHERINE JONES has a wonderful voice that would be very appealing to young children. She did a great job reading this audiobook and I would most certainly say go for it if one is considering this in assisting education. Another of its values comes in when thinking about listening skills being taught at a younger age.

Audiobook received in exchange for an honest review.
