Kweku Ananse is not exactly known for favoring hard work. In fact, he's better known for creatively avoiding hard work. So, why would the famously lazy trickster organize a work day?
An Ananse story from Ghana, written and narrated by A. Sakyiama.
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. 🙂
