Add the Audiobook

Our books are told as a dialogue between our characters Mona, Ted, Arthur and Lily. Our unique dialogue format allows us to explore the complexities of history, present different perspectives, discuss competing information, breakdown difficult topics, model critical thinking, and include traditionally ignored peoples and subjects. To make the dialogue come to life, we offer an audiobook for each level voiced by professional voice actors.

The audiobook can be bundled with any main text format for just $10!
