June is Audio Book Month

   June is Audio Book Month, sponsored by the Audio Publishers Association.

   You may remember audio books from your school days.  You might have listed to a book on cassette tape and turned the pages when you heard the chime.

   Children now may not  know what a cassette tape is, but many have CDs.  Books on CD are popular in the classroom and in libraries.  Their use can reinforce a child's desire to read.

   Audio books are a great way to keep children entertained on car trips, whether short trips such as going to the store, or long family vacations.

   Adults like audio books too...try one on your commute to and from work. 

   Libraries have a large selection of books on tape or CD for both children and adults.
