What are you doing for World Book Day this year? You could share a book by listening together to an audio story. Audio stories bring the written word alive with voices, music, sounds and songs. Listening together to a story can be as pleasurable and memorable an experience as sharing a book. You can listen to old favourites or explore a new story, often if children have listened to a story first it spurs them to find the book and read it for themselves.
StoryPhones has a free audio story for you to download and share with your children on World Book Day. The Four Dragons is a lovely tale from China and tells the story of how four dragons defy the Jade Emperor to help bring rain to a drought stricken land.
