Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Blythe Danner

Children Ages 8+ • 2.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1993

Actress Blythe Danner is the ideal reader for this short novel about a baby abandoned on the doorstep of a family's home on a Northeast coastal island. The poignant message of the power of words--the hurt of words not spoken and the comfort of words shared in love--is transmitted in Danner's sensitive reading of MacLachlan's lyrical writing. Soft music and the sounds of the ocean, shorebirds and a ferryboat's whistle are effectively used in setting the scene and for smoothing the transitions in MacLachlan's stylistically fragmented text. Although Baby was published as a children's book, this audiobook makes provocative listening for adults, too. C.R.A.
