Children Ages 4-6 • 7 mins. • unabridged • © 2007

Listeners will share poignant moments of life from birth to old age as Alison McGhee narrates her story in a clear voice. It starts with a new mother's adoring looks at her babe and tells the child's whole life story--from bike-riding child to the moment when the mother waves goodbye to a departing young adult who wonders how a home that once loomed so large can now look so small. The end introduces both sadness and joy as the mother, now silver haired, observes her own child as a parent. McGhee pauses frequently to provide time for reflection--and for absorbing illustrator Peter Reynolds's emotion-filled illustrations. Gentle sound effects provide background for each vignette.
