Vox Books for Kids

We have two exciting new additions to our Children's collections!

Vox Books are an updated version of a classic readalong. But, instead of a book and CD combo, the picturebook and audio is all-in-one. Pause, play, flip the page or adjust the volume through the built-in controller. Each picturebook can be listened to through the books speaker, or through headphones. Whether you’re in the mood for laugh or a bedtime winddown, we have just the book for you with more than 120 Vox Books available between our Main Library and John M. Harper Branch.
