they are books that read themselves out loud!

Every Wonderbook is a print book with a ready-to-play

audiobook inside. Kids will press play to read along and

then switch to learning mode for literacy learning and fun.

Wonderbooks read to children, ask them questions, and

make learning fun. They include easy-to-use play controls

for kids and a headphone jack for independent listening.

Visit our online catalog at www.myscpl.org and search for

Wonderbooks to find one today!
