Live Oak Media recently caught our attention with this read-along book-and-cassette program.. We listened first and were so delighted we couldn't wait to get the book. The picture books made the experience even better, but the audio recording was strong and vibrant by itself. Sarah Stewart's Depression-era story of a young girl sent to live with her uncle Jim in the city has a sweet, wistful quality with narration alone, but coupled with David Small's soft-edged pencil illustration, it's a total delight. The reading is repeated on both sides of the tape, one with and one without page-turning signals. R.F.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: MAR/APR 98]
