Honda Offers Free Audio Book App

January 4th, 2016 by

Honda LogoDriving and reading don’t mix – that is, unless you have the new Honda Road Readers app. This free smartphone app is now available for both Apple and Android devices. It provides easy – and free! – access to children’s audiobooks with the goal of providing more education and entertainment while in the car for the youngest passengers. Find out more about the Honda Road Readers app here in the Chicagoland and Elgin, IL area at Brilliance Honda of Crystal Lake!

Honda Road Readers App

It’s estimated that American families spend about four hours per week in the car. That’s why Honda surmised that children could benefit from a different kind of experience while in traffic. After commissioning a survey to find out how that travel time could be better spent, Honda began developing the Road Readers app.

In the survey Honda discovered that 77 percent of parents with children aged 5 to 16 – more than three out of four – think that listening to audiobooks or stories is important for children’s development. 69 percent of parents think that children spend too much time in front of screens. While the Honda Road Readers app might use a smartphone app, it doesn’t require children to stare at a screen – it actually provides five audio book titles of children’s classics to keep kids occupied in the car. In the future there will be ten rotating National Teacher of the Year featured books, with additional audio books across many favorite young adult genres, including fantasy, mystery, adventure, science fiction, and more.

Of course, these audio books aren’t just for entertainment. The app even includes critical thinking questions with most books, to make sure that kids are paying attention.

Any Honda owner can download this free app and access five free audio books per year. All you have to do is enter your vehicle’s VIN number. Drivers who own multiple Honda vehicles can get even more titles.

The new app is designed to provide “an educational and entertaining alternative to the usual car ride and inspire young listeners to vividly imagine,” said Susie Rossick, assistant vice president, Honda/Acura Regional Media and Marketing at American Honda Motor Co., Inc.
