Freebie Friday: Stars, Serving the Poor, Survey & Sync
Posted by: Mary Burkey


Here’s a batch of free audiobook listening for another snowed-in weekend!

Share some great books with kids, and let stars from the Screen Actors Guild do the reading. There are even activity guides to extended the fun at home or at school. Who could resist Betty White performing Gene Zion’s Harry the Dirty Dog? See & hear twenty-three terrific classic pictures books in these video storytimes!

When Helping Hurts, by Brian Fikkert & Steve Corbett and read by Danny Campbell, is this month’s free audiobook download from Christian Audio. This 7-hour long audio examines how to alleviate poverty through an effective and holistic ministry to the poor.

Random House Audio has a very short survey on your audiobook listening preferences. Take two minutes and get a free download of a great production of The Call of the Wild by Jack London, read by Jeff Daniels.

Here’s a sneak preview of the fantastic SYNC summertime promotion by the Audio Publishers Association. Sync has two FREE audiobook downloads all summer long, plus plenty of promotional materials for schools & libraries. Take a look at the 2014 line-up, and sign up for email alerts so you won’t miss a single title. I am thrilled to see so many titles recognized by the American Library Association’s media awards & selection lists on this year’s Sync list, many of them my personal favorites, along with great classics for family listening & classroom connections!

And as a middle school librarian, I’ve got to pass along a timely free print resource from a Booklist Delivers email I received. Grab a copy of Common Core Standards and Black History Month: A Thematic Guide to Black History in Literature and Informational Texts for Middle School Educators from Open Road Media:
