Introducing our new children’s read-along collection: VOX Books and Wonderbooks!

We at ICPL are excited to announce a change in our collection of children's Read-Along titles: audio enabled books, from VOX Books and WonderBooks!

Audio enabled books are a technology update to the classic "turn the page" read-alongs that featured compact discs previously. They look just like regular hardcover books, except they have an attached digital listening device on the inside of the front cover.

This device houses the audiobook content and serves as both a speaker and controller, allowing the user to start, and stop the title and to listen aloud or plug in a set of headphones for silent assisted reading. This device is rechargeable via a Micro-USB port, and once charged each book will last up to at least 50 plays. 

While Vox and Wonderbooks are essentially the same and very intuitive to use, there are a few differences in how the books operate.

Vox and Wonderbooks will be available for checkout starting in early December, and our collection will feature a range of titles and reading levels including picture books, nonfiction titles, early readers, and chapter books in both English and Spanish.
