TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD

TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD

by Harper Lee | Read by Sissy Spacek

Harper Audio/ Caedmon
Classics
Family Listening

It’s good to be reminded of the power wielded by this classic of American literature. As the introductory music fades and Sissy Spacek begins her narration, we immediately enter the small town in the Deep South where all the timeless issues of kindness and cruelty, inclusion and prejudice are played out in a story told by a little girl named Scout. Instead of offering a range... Read More

TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD
THE FLINT HEART

THE FLINT HEART

by Katherine Paterson, John Paterson | Read by Ralph Lister

Candlewick/ Brilliance Audio
Children
Ages 8+

Narrator Ralph Lister’s tone is warm and authoritative—like a nice cup of hot toddy—a style that is perfect for a story set in England in 1910. Twelve-year-old Charles and 5-year-old Unity undertake a quest to get rid of the Flint Heart, which turned their father into a cold and conniving person. Lister’s vocal characterizations are excellent. Every affectation reflects and... Read More

FLINT HEART
JOSEPHINE

JOSEPHINE The Dazzling Life of Josephine Baker

by Patricia Hruby Powell | Read by Lizan Mitchell

Recorded Books
Children
Ages 6+

"She shimmied. She shook. Sparks flew.” Like Josephine Baker herself, Lizan Mitchell's narration dazzles with verve and vivacity. The story of Baker's uninhibited rags-to-riches life is told in poetic, often staccato, sentences that Mitchell delivers with gusto, punctuating the action in a volcanic life that "erupted into the Roaring Twenties." Though Baker’s life was often... Read More

CODE NAME VERITY

CODE NAME VERITY

Earphones Award Winner

by Elizabeth Wein | Read by Morven Christie, Lucy Gaskell

Bolinda Audio
Young Adult
Ages 14+

To reveal almost anything about the way events in CODE NAME VERITY unfold would spoil the book’s many twists and turns and revelations. It all begins with Maddie, a young pilot, and Queenie, who are both part of the British war effort during WWII. The audiobook is its own revelation—narrators Morven Christie and Lucy Gaskell bring Queenie and Maddie to vibrant life, and... Read More

CODE NAME VERITY

Scholastic Audiobooks

Ages 12+

In the period of the Vietnam War, Holling Hoodhood starts his seventh-grade year at odds with his teacher, Mrs. Baker. Wednesday afternoons are their private time together, and the pastimes are many—from clapping erasers to dissecting various Shakespeare plays. Through Holling, his family, and his school compatriots, Schmidt takes clichés such as perfect families, battle-ax... Read More

WEDNESDAY WARS
MASTERS OF DISASTER

MASTERS OF DISASTER

Earphones Award Winner

by Gary Paulsen | Read by Nick Podehl

Brilliance Audio
Children
Ages 10+

Author Gary Paulsen personally introduces narrator Nick Podehl as a “trained professional who won’t ruin the recording by laughing.” His introduction is right on target: Podehl maximizes the story’s humor without cracking himself up as he portrays three 12-year-olds who are embarking on "dangerous missions." Podehl shows the confidence of mastermind Henry, the nerdiness of... Read More
