Too cool!!! My kids (K) listen to tapes and "read along" with books, or I
read from a book and have them try to visualize. But to have them listen
and draw!! I think that this might be helpful in making them start the
visualization process so necessary to reading comprehension and art. Start
seeing stuff in your mind!!

>(most of them love it--reminds them of younger times). Then they are to draw
