About this ebook

Long, long ago, the sky was so close to the ground that if you were tall enough and stretched a bit, you could just touch it. This Asante folktale tells us how it came about, that the sky is now far from the ground.


***

This is an audio-ebook. In addition to text, it includes the author-narrated audio of the story. It's a fun format that allows you to enjoy books by reading, listening, or reading and listening at the same time. This is a wonderful, low-stress way to help struggling readers find pleasure in reading. 


Listening makes the difference. Kids see the words highlighted on the page and at the same time, are able to hear how the words should be read. This way, they build reading skills and a richer vocabulary. 


Also, it's just plain fun sometimes to relax and have someone else read to you. 🙂
