The Player King by Avi | SLJ Audio Review

Out of ­Wonder by Kwame Alexander | SLJ Review

The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo | SLJ Audio Review

A Children’s Guide to Folklore and Wonder Tales by Hannah B. Harvey | SLJ Audio Review


Facing Frederick. The Life of Frederick Douglass

Students of the time period, American history, and social movements will find it valuable to absorb the details of Douglass's extraordinary life.

The Beauty That Remains

A sorrowful exploration of grieving teens complemented with narration that depicts their depth of feeling and paths towards finding peace.


This novel is recommended as a perfect addition to any library serving middle grades with a lot of dog and hockey fans.

The Poet X.

Libraries should prepare for eager audiences requesting multiple formats. Patrons who opt for the audio format can access Acevedo's additional explanatory track about a final contrapuntal poem.

Payback on Poplar Lane

Mincks's novel is perfectly layered with humor, tension, and adversity and reaffirms that true friendship is golden. Listeners will eagerly await the sequel.

Iggy Peck, Architect

While it's clear much effort was put into this production, the final product lacks polish. Because Beaty's picture books are so popular, many libraries will want to circulate this audiobook nonetheless.
