June is Audiobook Month 2017

Welcome to Day 12 of June is Audiobook Month Blog Tour! Thanks for visiting Adolescent Audio Adventures. As a children's librarian, I love to share stories as well as listen to stories. Audiobooks help feed my reading appetite because I can always have a book with me! Audiobooks are also great for trips. It doesn't matter if it's a quick commute or a long family road trip. They can be shared to an audience of one or more. I love it! And we have a whole month to celebrate!



Planning a family road trip this summer? Here are a couple suggestions for your travels this summer:

The Hero's Guide Series by Christopher Healy, read by Bronson Pinchot

  6. The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman are fantastic and what a way to get the whole family involved by listening to audiobook on a road trip! I have introduced my grandbabies to them, and I myself am a slight addict. I am currently listening to a cozy mystery. My favorite of the year thus far is The Garden of Small Beginnings.
