Audible – audio books, original series & podcasts
You have probably heard of Audible but it is included here as it can work wonders for children taking the 11+. The range and quality of spoken books is breath-taking and children can consume a vast amount of literature on journeys, waiting rooms, anywhere they can use a phone or a tablet. This enables children to develop more vocabulary, understanding of style, appreciation of plot and character development and simply to enjoy books.
