Children Ages 4-6 • .25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

On the second day in her new school in a new country, young Farah's class takes a field trip to an apple orchard. From the moment the children climb on the hay wagon and Farah sees that boys and girls are sitting together and that her jeans and T-shirt make her similar but her dupatta sets her apart, the listener knows that Farah's day will be filled with anxiety, as well as joy. Charlotte Parry's narration is superb. Her voice is even, but her emphasis on specific words and phrasing, as well as elongated pauses, underscores Farah's moments of frustration and feelings of being apart. The listener's intimate connection with the character of Farah is powerful. A.R. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 07]
