Is your child finding it difficult to read print due to illness or a learning disability? With a Listening Books membership, they could benefit from accessing a treasure trove of stories, fiction, non-fiction and text books! We offer over 3,000 children's audiobooks suitable for ages 7 upwards. Additionally, you can opt-in to give your child access to thousands of newspapers and magazines through our partner service PressReader.
As well as all the best fiction by authors such as Michael Morpurgo, David Walliams, Malorie Blackman and Jeff Kinney, we record books in our own studios which support the National and Scottish Curriculums. What’s even better is that we are a member-led charity, so if something is missing that you need for school then let us know! We can’t promise to get every title, but we do our best to add the books you need. The books we stock range from Key stage 2 - A-Level.
We are a charity so we try and keep membership fees as low as possible. You can join for your child and give them access to our whole online library for just £20 for the whole year. Your membership fee goes directly back into the charity and helps with running costs and buying more books. We don’t make any profit.
Yes, for anyone who would find the £20 joining fee a barrier then please do still apply. We take members on trust and you won’t need to produce any documentation that the fee would be prohibitive to joining.

I thought you might like to know that my daughter was absolutely delighted with the story and MP3 player this evening. What was striking is that having listened to only a few minutes she could tell me lots about the story. This is something she really can't do when she has read something as simply deciphering the words is as much as she can cope with. The format is really helpful as she can manage it herself and I am happy for her to have it in her bedroom for whenever she wants to listen.
