Audible (audio books) and your child

My daughter has recently signed up for audible so that she can utilize their audio books. I;m on the fence as to if this is a good idea. I would rather her read the books than to listen to them so that she continues to work on her reading skills.

What do you ladies think? Are audio books as good as reading books?

    For my textbooks, I had to read aloud because I couldn't understand if i didn't.. So in that sense, I can understand. But I would prefer they have the actual book, too (paper, not ereader).

    The screens can hurt your eyes if used for too much. And it's easy to get lost in a book.. Something about how white it is, don't remember for sure.

    I would do it as long she understands to limit it just like a computer.

      in my opinion I Don't like it, I think it takes away you learning a new word, how to pronounce it or even the definition of it ( in my case I am Hispanic so they are some words that doesn't come out the proper way or I just know how to pronounce it properly but have no clue what it means) and I think technology is taking over from library to this audio books! I mean you letting someone else do the work for you!!
