I post about Audiobook Sync every year, but every year it’s worth posting about! This is a free program to keep teens and young adults engaged with books over the summer. For 16 weeks, the program offers free, high-quality audiobooks for download. There are two each week, and they are paired to provide a meaningful reading and thinking experience. Anyone can download the books, but they are aimed at ages 13+, and they take that pretty seriously, so do your research before sharing the books with younger children.
This week, one of the books is Kwame Alexander’s Solo. Alexander is one of the most thoughtful writers for teens right now. His books deal with real issues, with frankness, but also with deep hope and compassion.
The books change out every Thursday, so mark your calendars!
