Yesterday, I was the first one to check out something new, PLAYAWAY®, from the library. For the same loan period as a print copy or recording, a borrower can check out a small, dedicated MP3 player with a recorded book. So now, Jeff is proudly several chapters ahead of his classmates in THE GIVER by Lois Lowry.
The boom box is still getting use--I put on Newbery Award-winner, RABBIT HILL by Robert Lawson, this evening.
"What's happening so far?" I asked after about twenty minutes of listening."Oh, the bunnies are just talking."
