    I agree with your statement Michelle that reading is like watching T.V. and if you don't like what you are watching you just change the chanel. I think that by providing books-on-tape, that you are providing those students who have difficulty getting into the world of reading expand their imagination and visualize easier. I watched the students in my internship read along with the voice of the Reading Rainbow guy for "The Cay" by Theodore Taylor and they loved it. All of the students, even those with ADD or with behavior problems seemed enveloped in the book. He had the Jamaican accent that not many of us can acheive that made the story and words come alive in the child's mind, as well as mine!:)
