Enriched with reflections and comments from authors, audiobook narrators, producers, reviewers, and librarians, this book

Shows how audiobooks not only benefit struggling readers and bring families together but also fit neatly within newly accepted standards for early literacy education Demonstrates how to use audiobooks as classroom and library tools for learning Identifies how to locate "must-have" audiobooks and offers advice for maintaining a collection
