As a former middle school librarian and author of Booktalking Around the World: Great Global Reads for Ages 9-14, Sonja's mission is to get kids excited about books. For her, a perfect day includes knitting while listening to a brilliantly performed audiobook. In addition to reviewing, Sonja also writes about children and family listening on AudioFile's blog ( category/kids-tweens). C.A. Caitlin Augusta, Librarian, CT C.B.L. Candace B.

My first job as a high school English teacher offered a 90-minute (one way!) commute—and that is how my love for audiobooks blossomed. Thanks to our public library, I listened to every classic my college literature classes hadn't featured, and the drive time flew by. I still listen in the car—mostly driving to hike in the Adirondacks—and I always have books playing at home, too. Cooking, gardening, sewing, painting... my favorite projects all have audiobook titles attached to them, depending on what I listened to while I worked. Audiobooks make everything that much better!
