like i said there whole idea for llbrary time is to encourage literacy. He
can't get all that from listening.  :).   The teacher sounds like  you are
abusing him by making him read lol.      i tend to shy anyway from audio
for recreational books right now because she needs the practice.  I do let
her listening to NLS books when she is really sick because her sighted
brother would lay down watching TV.  I also don't think its bad to offer
audio books to all the kids but i assume the library would limit how often
they can take out audio books.
