Millions of Australians are listening to audio books, 2.5 million to be exact and the number is growing. The data shows that adult listeners are using audio books to multi task.
In children, we know that listening to audio books: Increases reading accuracy by 52%, improves comprehension by 76% and a combination of listening and reading increases recall 40% over print alone.
