Our third and fourth graders will be happy to know that lots of these books have a green foil star on the spine. That means the library owns an audio recording of the book called a Playaway that they can borrow to listen to the story being read aloud. I first started using the green stars earlier this year, and I've been happy to see how many of the students have looked for a companion book when borrowing a Playaway. Simply listening to a story being read aloud benefits a student, but also seeing the words helps increase their exposure to text, comprehension, fluency and vocabulary.
