Findaway Introduces a New Read-Along Device for Libraries and Schools

Findaway released Wonderbook, “a new read-along format designed for circulation. Wonderbook combines an audiobook experience with a print book, creating an engaging and powerful literacy tool for library and school patrons ages 3-13.”

Part of the Playaway product portfolio, Wonderbook “features a Playaway-inspired pre-loaded audiobook player permanently attached to the inside of a hardcover book.” It is “self-contained and shelf-ready, requiring no additional packaging or parts to manage.” The content catalog features titles from major children’s book publishers and offers “picture books, leveled readers, early chapter books, Spanish, and non-fiction titles” as well as “exclusive audiobook productions, available only in the Wonderbook format.”

Each read-along has a Learning Mode with open-ended questions from the narrators that are designed to increase reading comprehension.

For more information, read the press release.
