So, while poking around online, I discovered June is Audiobook Month! Until library school began, I didn't know much about audiobooks, and to be honest, was a bit apprehensive of the whole idea...I mean, listening to a book? Can you really pay proper attention to what's happening? I soon discovered how mistaken I truly was after listening to Neil Gaiman's The Graveyard Book. What a fantastic listening experience! I'm kind of hooked now, and am a big proponent of the many positive learning benefits that come with audiobooks. They engage a completely different type of intelligence, and are a good way to sharpen listening skills and attention span. Here is a wonderful article that lists all of the benefits of audiobooks from Reading Rockets. Below are some audiobook suggestions for children, tweens, and teens alike. Enjoy!
