THE TREASURE

by | Read by Jim Weiss

Children Ages 4-6 • 6 min. • Book/Cassette • © 1979

What will Isaac bring back from his journey? In THE TREASURE, Shulevitz evokes a mood of anticipation and urgency through sparse text and luminous yellow backlighting for each illustration. Jim Weiss furthers this sense of expectation in his narration. His slow pacing provides pause to take in the serenity of the white pages and savor the soft palette and detail of Shulevitz's illustrations. Weiss's quiet presentation lets Isaac's thoughts come to the fore, and he adds just the right amount of vocal contrast for the captain of the guards. It is perhaps important in our time to find the opportunity for the repose and reflection that this Caldecott Honor winner brings. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/ JAN 02]
