First make sure your audio files are mp3 formats.
Choose File>Place and place the first sound on the first page. With the sound selected go to the Media panel and check Play on Page Load, Stop on Page Turn, Loop.
Now,there is a glitch in Acrobat that shows the sound as a dark gray rectangle with a yellow line.
So what you have to do is select the frame that holds the sound and make it microscopic. Then choose Object > Fit content to Frame. Then put the frame in a bottom corner of the page. It shouldn't mess up your layout.
Now do the same for each other page.
Export as interactive PDF and you're done
Edit: There is another way to hid the audio sound without making it microscopic. After you've placed the sound, create a button filled with white or Paper. It needs to be on top of the sound. Don't give it an action. Just keep it on the page.

Sandee, thank you very much for your insight. Another question is would the above process allow the sound files to play automaticaly when page is viewed or turned to or would something else need to be done for that to happen?
Yes, they'll play automatically when you navigate to their page. That's what "Play on Page Turn" means.
Yes, as Steve said, that's what "Play on Page Turn" means.
But I don't know if this will bother you or not, but it means that the sound will play when the page is opened either going forward or going back.
Steve, thanks for your help. As you can tell I'm new to this area of InDesign.
