a book on tape


Explanation:
From the site in the reference:
"Taped Book Method

Tape recording books can be a valuable tool for motivating readers, and at the same time provide a model for good reading. Children and adults can listen to a story on cassette while following along in their copies of the book. While listening to the story over and over, children learn to associate the spoken word with the printed word. Not only does listening to tapes enrich vocabulary and word recognition, but it also provides the listener with reading that is fluent, accurate, and expressive. Listening and following along in the book focuses on interpretation and allows the reader/listener to become involved in the story."
