Tales2Go is a Netflix‐like service that streams thousands of name-brand audio book titles from leading publishers to desktops, laptops and mobile devices in the classroom and beyond. The company has innovated on both the delivery and business model of distributing audio books to schools, early childhood programs and parents, giving users instant, unlimited and simultaneous access to its catalog.

- "Tales2Go has had a huge impact on the the K-5 students in my school this year. Listening to books read by storytellers and actors serves as a model for how to read fluently and with expression. Tales2Go has also allowed struggling readers to access higher level texts in their reading classes. Students also improve their sight word vocabulary and comprehension when they listen to an audio book while following along in the print version of the book. Tales2Go has motivated students to read more and has helped students develop positive attitudes about reading." Cathy Potter, School Librarian, Falmouth, ME

When I read about this in the New York Times, I admit I was a bit skeptical. But, I am a complete convert now. It's genius! thousands of audio stories -- can't buy one for that price! And, my kids haven't even begun to scratch the surface of all the stories, but they've become avid listeners now. I can't say enough good things about this app. But, the very BEST part was how it helped my youngest with his reading ... he'd been listening to the Goosebumps books with the app, and one day I suggested he listen along with a copy of the book. Boom! He LOVED it, felt in control of learning to read, and now is asking for more and more books (and of course, more and more audio stories, too)! GENIUS!
