Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Barbara Caruso

Children Ages 4-8 • 1 hr. • Unabridged • © 1954

This book is a little gem, and so is the performance. Dalgliesh recounts the fact-based story of 8-year-old Sarah, born in 1699. Sarah has left her mother's side to help her father build the family's new home in the wilderness. The text, with its themes and its repeated refrain ("Keep up your courage, Sarah Noble!") lends itself to reading aloud, and Barbara Caruso is the perfect performer for the job. Gifted with a warm, friendly voice, she performs with simplicity, clarity and sympathy. Just the right amount of emotion colors her voice when she reads dialogue and interior monologue. S.P. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 99]
