The power of storytelling goes beyond solely being entertained by a good story. It is a well-known fact that those who are read too have larger vocabularies and even higher cognitive skills than their peers.

During the past holiday season, Simply Audiobooks raised enough money for the Books for Kids charity that allowed an entire Books for Kids library to be restocked with new books. The campaign enabled customers to choose the option of donating to charity at checkout with the purchase of a gift certificate. Simply Audiobooks donated 10% of the gift value, on the customer’s behalf, to the Books for Kids charity.
The funds raised will not only restock an entire library, but will also allow Books for Kids to give away a collection of take home books for low-income and at-risk preschool-aged children served by that library. Simply Audiobooks is thrilled to give back to a charity that strives to promote literacy and help children who do not have adequate access to books.
As literacy remains a prominent issue, it’s vital that we address the fundamental value of literacy at a young age in order to protect the academic future of a child. With 85% of our core personality traits, our intellect, social skills, developed at the age of 5, it is crucial to support a child’s growth. Ian Small, Brand Manager of Simply Audiobooks, believes “the power of storytelling goes beyond solely being entertained by a good story. It is a well-known fact that those who are read too have larger vocabularies and even higher cognitive skills than their peers.”
Being a part of something that emphasizes the core values of literacy and having Simply Audiobooks customers feel the same way, highlights a special community that is dedicated to creating a solid foundation for future academic success. Simply Audiobooks is proud to be a part of this giving community.
