Audible Changed Our life
One of my favourite quotes of the year is "When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change".
When reading is an arduous and challenging chore, there is nothing I have found that I could possibly say and do to instil any love of story.
When I remembered that books are about pleasure and joy, adventure and escapism, changing the way I thought of "books" changed everything for my dyslexic child.
One year ago we downloaded Audible and Sam spent the summer listening to Rick Riordan's entire body of work. And then the Fall, and then the Winter and then the Spring.
We have all become used to finding him in the house by following the sound of his "book" coming from his ipod.
And maybe my favourite part is watching how he now joins in on conversations about books with other kids and I see his confidence soar.
"When we change the way we look at things, the things we look at change".
