Join the Voxblock Listening Challenge This Summer

Summer holidays are a magical time for children—sunny days, endless play, and the freedom from school routines. But the holidays are still a great opportunity to keep up with reading. This summer, we’re excited to introduce the Voxblock Listening Challenge: an engaging and motivating way for our young listeners to immerse themselves in the wonderful world of audiobooks!

What is the Voxblock Listening Challenge?

The Voxblock Listening Challenge is designed to make listening to audiobooks even more fun. We’ve created a treasure map-style poster with 20 spaces for your child to fill in as they listen to different audiobooks. Think of it as a literary adventure, where each completed audiobook is a step closer to the treasure!

Why Summer Holidays Are Perfect for Audiobooks

With no school and plenty of free time, the summer holidays are ideal for children to dive into new stories and explore different worlds through audiobooks. Listening to audiobooks:

  • Enhances vocabulary and language skills: Exposure to new words and phrases.
  • Boosts imagination and creativity: Stories come to life in their minds.
  • Encourages a love for reading: A fun and relaxing activity that doesn’t feel like homework.

Tips to Stay Motivated and Complete the Challenge

  1. Create a Cosy Listening Space: Make a special nook with comfy cushions and their favourite blanket where they can relax and enjoy their audiobooks.
  2. Pick Exciting Titles: Let your child choose audiobooks that pique their interest. Whether it’s magical adventures, fascinating non-fiction, or classic tales, the key is to keep them excited about what’s next.
  3. Share the Experience: Listen together as a family. Discuss the stories, ask questions, and let your child tell you what they liked most about each audiobook.
  4. Celebrate Milestones: For every five audiobooks completed, have a mini celebration. It could be a special treat, a fun outing, or a new audiobook to look forward to.
  5. Track Progress Visually: Use the treasure map poster to mark each completed audiobook. Seeing their progress visually can be a huge motivator for children.

How to Get Started

  1. Get your Listening Challenge poster with any purchase made at Voxblock over the Summer
  2. Listen and Enjoy: Dive into the story and enjoy the adventure.
  3. Fill in the Poster: After finishing each audiobook, write the title on the treasure map poster and don’t forget to give it a star rating. Watch as you get closer to the treasure with each story!

This summer, let’s embark on a literary adventure with the Voxblock Listening Challenge. It’s a fantastic way to keep your child engaged, entertained, and learning all summer long. Happy listening!
