Playaway Audiobooks
Playaway audiobooks are "all-in-one" audiobooks - a device and audiobook in one! These compact, easy-to-use audiobooks are perfect for when you are on-the-go, or to listen to at home.
You can borrow a playaway audiobook for up to three weeks, with no limits on how many you can borrow at one time. You must supply your own headphones.

Read-Along Picture Books
Print book, meet audio book! Our Read-Along Picture Books contain a permanently attached reader which transforms an ordinary print book into an all-in-one read-along. There's no need for computers, tables or CDs.
A rechargeable battery will allow you to listen to the story over and over again, worry-free. Plus each player has a headphone jack built right in, so adults can choose to read along, or have children engage in some quiet independent reading time.
