Read Around the World with Your Ears

Audiobooks provide an authentic cultural listing experience. You’ll find selected titles for both kids & teens in two full-color handout flyers perfect for libraries gearing up for the start of the school year. Part of the resources available on the American Library Association’s  Ethnic & Multicultural Information Exchange Round Table website, the audiobook recommendations are ideal to have as flyers near the audiobook collection, as handouts for teachers, or as selection guides for building your personal or library collection. Audiobook expert Sharon Grover, from the Hedberg Public Library in Janesville, Wisconsin and past chair of the Odyssey Award committee,  selected over 35 titles to represent the voices of our global society. Consider these essential additions to any audiobook collection:
