VOX Books Now Available in English and Spanish at the Library

Parents and other caregivers are always looking for ways to make reading fun and engaging for kids. Thanks to a new offering from the St. Charles Public Library, they won’t need to look far!  Due to a grant through MiEnergy’s Operation Round Up program and support from the Friends of the St. Charles Public Library, the library was able to purchase a collection of VOX Books in both English and Spanish.

VOX Books include embedded audio, allowing readers to listen to the book while they follow along. VOX Books don’t require CDs, tapes, batteries, devices, or internet access; just press a button and you’re listening and reading! VOX Books can also be used with or without headphones, making them perfect for both solo and group enjoyment.

St. Charles area residents can borrow these engaging VOX Books for free. All they need is a library card!

VOX Books have won awards from parents’ groups, including the 2021 National Parenting Product Award in their Best Books for Kids and Families category, and a 2021 Mom’s Choice Award. A recent review in School Library Journal noted that “Narrators are lively and will keep readers engaged. Educators can use VOX Books to help early or struggling readers learn to pronounce words, hold a book, and turn pages, and practice tracking text from left to right. This is a valuable tool not only for libraries but also for teachers to use in the classroom and for parents to use at home.”
