New take on audio libaries

Adults reading aloud is one of the core activities during the early years, but we know that new technologies, pre-recorded messages and audio books can offer opportunities to children and families that we never experienced before. When I worked in Tampa as a literacy coach and family engagement liaison, I noticed that children were having really hard transitions from home to school. Children wanted to call their families all the time to get assurance that they will be back for them.  We started building an audio library with a recording of families telling their children that they will be back at the end of the day.
