Have you tried audio books?
Great books to listen to!
Have you ever thought about trying audio books? Listening to stories really enriches children's language patterns and vocabulary. I love to do my jobs at home listening to an audio book and we always listen to a great story when we have a long car journey. My children go to sleep listening to the latest books, and this has continued now they are at secondary school. I have used ITunes and Audible, although there are lots of 'free' books included in the Audible subscription. My top recommendation is the 'How to Train your Dragon' series, read by David Tennant. These are truly brilliant.
