Children should still get exposed to reading, even though their schools closed. It helps develop their brains, social skills, imagination, and communication skills. All these are important to your child's development and success in life. Everything in life requires reading. There is no getting around it. Times have changed, and technology has advanced. Reading has become more accessible because of audibles, kindle, resources online, and YouTube. When my kids were younger, it was easier to read to them, but I regret not encouraging it more, but I have been able to get my younger one to enjoy reading by using these tips I'm about to share with you.

Amazon Audible

The company is giving all kids free access to their library of audibles while schools closed.


There is an extensive amount of digital animated books. The stories are being read aloud and watched at the same time. They are offering a 30- day free trial period, and afterward, it's $4.99 a month.


It's an online digital library that has over 35,000 different genres of books for kids up to the age of twelve. They also have 30-day free access to all their books and pay $7.99 a month. You can use it either on a mobile device or on a desktop. The books read either in ebook, read to me, or audible. 


It offers a wide variety of free Audiobooks, either as podcasts or on the website for kids of all ages. They also have download features for later use.
