A new exploratory field study from the Joan Ganz Cooney Center at Sesame Workshop showed that children prefer e-books to print books and those children who read e-books also retain and comprehend just as much as when they read print books.
“Kids should have great storytelling and engaging experiences wherever they may happen to be reading, and digital is opening so many more opportunities. Our HEAR IT READ IT™ e-books bring classic stories to life with fun performances that improve comprehension and spark imagination,” said Todd Stocke, Vice President and Editorial Director at Sourcebooks.
Perfect for high-level young readers experiencing the classics for the first time and also ideally accessible for “reluctant readers,” HEAR IT READ IT™ Classics give young readers the best possible introduction to the world’s timeless tales. The abridged story remains true to the brilliant original story, and the multimedia presentation allows modern readers to fully appreciate and interact with the classic text.
