Dear FITA mailing list subscribers,

Merlin Publishers have created a professionally produced set of audiobooks of a wide range of original children’s literature in Maltese.

These audio books are professionally recorded by well-known actors – Ray Calleja, Rachel Portelli, Roderick Vassallo, Daniela Carabott Pawley, Ruth Borg, Chris Galea, Ruth Borg, Antonella Mifsud – under the artistic direction of Josette Ciappara.

These new audiobooks will allow Maltese speaking children with visual impairments, to join their sighted peers in experiencing the joys of reading books in Maltese.

The audio books are available in mp3 format and are readable on any mp3 player device, including computers and tablets.

Thanks to funding by the Premju tal-President għall-Kreattività, the audio books are  free of charge to anyone who has a vision impairment or print disability.
