15 Youth Titles for Appreciating Audiobooks

Posted on June 1, 2023

Every June, Audiobook Appreciation Month aims to raise awareness about audiobooks and increase engagement with their various formats. Nowadays, audiobooks can be more than the clunky containers of CDs we’re used to seeing. We’re happy to provide those, of course, but we also have Playaways—think an MP3 player with one specific title on it— several forms of digital audio through Overdrive or hoopla, and Wonderbooks, which are physical books for younger audiences with an audio player built right in.

Audiobooks are convenient for busy schedules, but they’re also great tools for engaging with reading in a new way and learning literacy along the way. Sometimes, they even feature music, sound effects, and whole casts.
