“Keep reading. It’s one of the most marvelous adventures that anyone can have.”

― Lloyd Alexander

There is such a wide variety of ebooks on our OverDrive Digital Library, and we are very excited to share some of these adventures with you!

One of the great formats on OD is Read-Along books. Read-Along books are a wonderful tool to help a student learn to read or practice reading. They allow you to see the words and hear them being read to you at the same time. It can help with word recognition and reading speed, while still drawing the reader into the story.

Read-Along books come in varying difficulty and content levels so they should not be considered as only for those just learning to read. They can be read with and without using the narration feature. Here are some examples of the Read-Along books that we have available. I hope that they will get you excited to read, and will perhaps inspire you to read more challenging content, as you find books to pique your interest.
