Long, long ago, the sky was so close to the ground that if you were tall enough and stretched a bit, you could just touch it. This Asante folktale tells us how it came about, that the sky is now far from the ground.
With this audio-ebook version of the story, you can read and listen at the same time or switch between reading and listening. This is a wonderful, low-stress way to help struggling readers find pleasure in reading.
Listening makes the difference. Kids see the words highlighted on the page and at the same time, are able to hear how the words should be read. This way, they build reading skills and a richer vocabulary.
Also, it's just plain fun sometimes to relax and have someone else read to you. :-)
