Listening Books is a charity providing a service for people with print impairments. As such, our audiobooks can only be used with children and young people who struggle to read books in the usual way due to an illness, disability, learning disability or mental health condition.
There are some great titles available to support pupils from Key Stage 2 to A-Level including GCSE English 'Of Mice and Men: The Text Guide' and 'Killer Exam Tips for Biology', as well as lots of fantastic fiction titles including 'Face' by Benjamin Zephaniah and 'The Story of Tracy Beaker' by Jacqueline Wilson. All of these titles can be played to a group of students straight from a PC or laptop or pupils can listen individually through headphones.
