Read-Alongs highlight the sentences as they are being read, turn the page automatically, and offer the ability to follow along in 3 text sizes. They also include an innovative bookmarking feature and the ability to switch to manual in order to read at your own speed. The collection features picture books, early readers, chapter books, junior fiction, YA/teen novels, classics and Shakespeare.

Read-Alongs are great for emergent, struggling, and reluctant readers, and are an excellent tool for ESL students. Read-Alongs will also appeal to accomplished readers who are excited to follow along to the narration of their favorite books.
