Hello, I’m Elizabeth Wilkinson MBE. I am Elizabeth, but everyone calls me Eli (pronounced Ellie). Ok, so who am I and what do I do? I am the founder of Dyslexia information Day & Dyslexia Awards (both not-for-profit events), and my business is The Dyslexic Dyslexia Consultant. I learned about Listening Books in the early 2000’s, whilst attending the Education Show, at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham. I was blown away by what they do.
Listening to audiobooks is a great way for you or your child to read more. Often it can be hard to keep your child entertained, especially over the long summer holidays, and books are a great solution. So, here are a few tips to keep your child engaged and reading over the summer.
When you're writing your book, think about the accessibility of the story, the way it sounds when it is read out loud. Think about all the different audiences that might access your book in different ways. After all, we are not just writing words on a page, we are writing stories for people to hear.
