Playaway Bookpacks help bring pages to life at the push of a button, delivering a fun and educational read-along experience to children of all ages. Each Bookpack contains a Playaway all-in-one audiobook and paperback book(s) for hours of entertainment. No cassettes. No CDs. No Downloading. Just Press Play!
Playaway Bookpacks can go where you go. Because Playaways were designed for active lifestyles, there's no need to worry about scratches or missing content (unlike CDs.) It is also compatible with standard listening accessories, like headphones, speakers, and car adapters so you can listen anywhere.
Bookpacks benefit all readers with increased comprehension, fluency and vocabulary skills. Valuable Playaway features, such as automatic bookmarking and multiple narration speed choices, make learning at an individual pace easy.
"The State Library of Kansas is pleased to partner with Findaway to distribute another great product. Bookpacks, which pair audiobooks with print, are a perfect complement to our governor's literacy initiative that focuses on students achieving grade level reading by 4th Grade. I believe Bookpacks support reluctant and struggling readers, home schoolers, English Language Learners and adult literacy programs with the goal of promoting literacy and life-long learners."
Jo Budler, State Librarian of Kansas and Library Journal Librarian of the Year 2013
"The new tool is intuitive to use and offers educational benefits including increased reading comprehension, retention, vocabulary skills, phonemic awareness, and fluency."
