June is Audiobook Month and a good time to introduce AudiobookSYNC fans to more audiobook resources for youth.
Sound Learning Summer Listening lists are now available for downloading on the Audio Publishers Association Sound Learning site. Scroll through the opening page of the site to the bottom where you'll see a dropdown menu under “The Audiobook Experience”. The 32 titles and series selected by youth audiobook experts Mary Burkey and Sharon Grover can be found in two listings on that menu: “Summer Reading for Younger Listeners” and “Summer Reading for Older Listeners.” Please be sure to read, and share with other adults concerned about summer reading for kids, Mary and Sharon’s compelling introduction, which is included above the title listings.
Projects like Sound Learning bring together a number of generous collaborators, including the professional trade association of APA, AudioFile Magazine, audiobook publishing companies including Tantor, and platform developers like Findaway.
