Drawing on decades of audiobook experience and research, librarians Grover and Hannegan convincingly make the case that audiobooks not only present excellent opportunities to engage the attention of young people but also advance literacy. Listening to Learn connects audiobooks with K-12 curricula and demonstrates how the format can support national learning standards and literacy skills by * Presenting a concise history of the audiobook, with commentary from experts in the field * Showing librarians how to harness their library’s audiobook collection and practice effective collection development * Including thematic lists of quality titles and suggested group listening activities, ready for use in the classroom by teachers * Helping parents use audiobooks as an incentive to read and encourage skill development Complete with a research bibliography and resource guide, Listening to Learn ensures that librarians, educators, and parents can make audiobooks a major component of literacy advancement.
