Burkey suggests resources such as "ALSC Notable Children's Recordings & YALSA Amazing Audiobook selection lists and Odyssey Award titles" for audio books. She also posts this link for evidence of why they are important. The SPED department in our district recognized the importance of these resources but chose to buy MP3 players and record someone reading the book instead of buying the audio version. As Floyd pointed out, this is copyright violation. I wonder who was responsible for knowing and/or enforcing this in my district? I still don't know.
