IDA B ...and Her Plans to Maximize Fun, Avoid Disaster, and (Possibly) Save the World

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Lili Taylor

Children Ages 8+ • 3.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

Ida B’s childhood is idyllic--she is home-schooled by understanding parents on a family farm, surrounded by natural beauty. But this perfect world is shattered when her mother begins cancer treatment. Some acreage is sold to pay medical costs, and Ida B’s beloved trees are cut down for new housing. Worse, she’s forced to return to school, the same school that made her miserable during a brief stint in kindergarten. How this sensitive, creative girl comes to terms with the monumental changes in her life makes for a deeply moving story for all ages. Lili Taylor demonstrates a nuanced understanding for all of the characters and tells Ida B’s story with perfect pitch, pacing, and love. E.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award, 2005 ALA Notable Recording © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 05]
