Audiobooks: That All May Learn


Booklist’s Quick Tips for Schools and Libraries – a new & improved monthly e-newsletter – debuts today with great ideas for teachers, librarians, parents, and caregivers. Sign up for your FREE connection to reviews of the newest & best in children’s and YA literature, as well as exclusive content such this month’s columns on mystery read-alouds and children’s books about unemployment and job loss.

Audiobooks: That All May Learn is the title of my article in this month’s Quick Tips about audio formats for special-needs students, with links to resources that provide FREE audiobooks and NO COST audio versions of ANY textbook or novel assigned to students with disabilities that limit print use. Feel free to print out the column, forward to your special education staff, email to colleagues, or post in your parent newsletter. Add the resources from these organizations to your educational toolkit and increase your students’ access to audiobooks at no charge!
