Heard Any Good Books Lately?: Must-Have Audiobooks for Tweens and Teens
Mandell, Phyllis Levy
School Library Journal, v56 n8 p32-38 Aug 2010
Audiobooks are excellent tools to help students build literacy skills as well as improve listening, writing, and vocabulary competencies. In many shared or independent reading situations, audiobooks offer support to reluctant and struggling readers, special-needs students, and English-language learners. They are also embraced by voracious readers. With the popularity of audiobooks and the budget cuts libraries are facing, a group of public and school librarians were asked to recommend 25 must-have audiobooks released in the past 10 years for middle and for high school students to help librarians get the most bang for their buck. This article presents this list of must-have audiobooks for middle and for high school students, arranged in chronological order beginning with the most highly recommended.
