PreS-Gr 2-Alison McGhee's love letter (Atheneum, 2007) to mother-daughter relationships is given an appropriately sentimental treatment in this audio version. The milestones in a child's life from birth to adulthood and old age are featured. Peter Reynolds's pen-and-ink watercolor illustrations convey the mood of the text. Janine Turner narrates lovingly and with zest. Plenty of time is allowed for page turns and a full ten-second pause follows the reading of each page's text, allowing time to peruse the artwork. Page-turn signals are optional. This well-produced package will have more appeal for adults than for children.-Jennifer Verbrugge, Dakota County Galaxie Library, Apple Valley, MN Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
