Studies repeatedly demonstrate that combining audio with reading improves:
Plus audio brings books to life, increasing motivation and engagement, and giving emerging readers access to books that have high interest but exceed their independent reading levels.
Students who read and listen not only read more but they gain more from their reading.
New VOX™ Books are so simple to use that students can read and listen unassisted. As a result, VOX Books help children feel independent and build confidence.
Research shows that there is a strong positive correlation between student engagement and student achievement.

VOX Books can be used for one-on-one instruction, for independent reading and as a read-aloud. They are an effective literacy tool for PreK-2 students of all abilities, from struggling readers needing reinforcement to fluent readers ready to stretch their skills.
Audio-supported reading reinforces learning by engaging two modalities: reading and listening. With a variety of engaging fiction and non-fiction titles, VOX Books offer appealing choices for every reader and are perfect for the Listen to Reading component of the Daily 5 framework.
Our titles are carefully chosen to introduce students to Common Core subject areas across a variety of levels and genres. They help students strengthen reading skills while providing exposure to information-rich primary materials and teaching beginning research skills.
Students can listen to VOX Books two different ways: either via the speaker at the top of the VOX Reader or via headphones, which can be plugged into the Reader.
VOX Books are durable enough to withstand repeated use by active children. Because the VOX Reader is permanently attached to the book’s front cover, it is both protected and impossible to lose.
VOX Books require no additional media, electronics, or subscriptions. We provide a one-year warranty and replacement policy to ensure your satisfaction.
