You might have heard us say this before, but here at The Read-Aloud Revival, we believe that audio books count. Today we're going behind the scenes to talk about how an audio book is made.

In fact, we often prefer reading books on audio. Listening to a good book, well-read, is a wonderful way to fill your child's life with beautiful language.

In this episode of the podcast, I'm chatting with Lyssa Browne of Cedar House Audio Productions, about the process of making an audio book, voice acting and more.
