Vox Books



Print book, meet audio book. VOX Books are the world’s first audio books that live in print books. The permanently attached VOX Reader transforms an ordinary print book into an all-in-one read-along. There’s no need for computers, tablets or CDs. Children simply push a button to listen and read.

VOX Books combine outstanding picture books and non-fiction with audio recordings that capture children’s attention and make learning and literacy development fun.

Since their introduction in 2015, VOX Books have been embraced by schools and libraries across the US as a powerful tool for engaging children with books and developing the reading skills needed for success in school and in life.

Vox Books are located in our Children”s Area near the picture books.
