Evaluating Audiobooks on… Audio!


Click here for a link to the audio recording of our ALA session “Evaluating Audiobooks for Children & Teens” – with tips for anyone interested in learning how to talk the talk of audiobooks. Be sure to check out this post for the session notes, PowerPoint, and more. And if you’d like even more research and resources, I’ve gathered lots on this post. I am getting ready to put the tips into use myself while writing a review for The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane, from Random House Audio – an audiobook so awesome that I wished the vacation car trip lasted longer so that I could listen more!
