The Society of Voice Arts and Sciences (SOVAS) has nominated two Learning Ally audiobooks for Best Voice Over Audiobook Narration for Children’s Pre-School books. Our volunteer-narrated-books, Wonder and The Lorax, have received this prestigious honor and we are grateful to our voiceover community for their hard work and dedication. Wonder was Learning Ally's top title for the 16/17 school year, added to 10,236 virtual bookshelves across the country. The nominations came in just in time for Wonder's premiere November movie release date.
