June is Audiobook Appreciation Month

For June, we celebrate Audiobook Appreciation Month. The Audio Publishers Association (APA) started this month-long celebration to promote this format and its numerous benefits to readers everywhere as another way to enjoy books.

As the Children’s Book Council team is always up for talking about the interesting books we love to dive into, we are sharing our favorite audiobooks. Also, check out our current National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature Meg Medina’s Get Caught Listening poster. 

Join us in celebrating Audiobook Appreciation Month and let us know on social media what you’re reading this June!
