Audiobooks New Zealand
New Zealand bilingual children’s picture books and audiobooks in English and Te Reo Māori.
Nana’s Shed Books Read-Along Audiobooks are a collection of child-centred stories that provide opportunity for growing readers to hear, first-hand, what fluent reading in English and te reo Māori should sound like.
The narrations model how each story should sound, by incorporating proper pacing, the intonations of reading, and how punctuation should sound. They also provide growing readers with an expanding vocabulary and help to improve reading accuracy, fluency and speed - skills that are key to future success in independent reading, and in reading aloud.
The Nana’s Shed Books Read-Along Audiobook collection complements the matching hard copy collection. Using the two together allows growing readers to utilise the visual clues embedded in the illustrations, while following the words on the page with their eyes, listening to the words being read to them, learning to pronounce new words, and responding to the ruru call to turn the page.
The added benefit of Nana’s Shed Books Read-Along Audiobooks is that they can be listened to in all manner of situations; on long car trips, on wet days, while also supporting the development of reading skills, including language comprehension, the ability to understand and retain information, and the thrill of reading independence.
