Grover and Hannegan draw upon their library and award committee experience to recommend titles and activities for integrating audiobooks into K-12 learning. They survey research that links listening with improved vocabulary and reading comprehension; highlight programs such as Earphone English for English-language learners; identify national, state, and local learning standards relevant to classroom listening; and suggest audio titles and classroom activities corresponding to learning standards. Annotations for 180 audiobooks (for primary, intermediate primary, middle, and high schools) give special attention to narration, music, and effects, in addition to plot summaries. For collection development, there are criteria for evaluating audiobooks and suggested online resources to keep current on new titles. Evolving formats, including Playaways and downloadable audio, are briefly discussed. Bolstered with quotes from teachers, authors, narrators, and others who share an enthusiasm for audio, this guide is recommended for libraries supporting teachers and parents.--Burcher, Charlotte Copyright 2010 Booklist
