Would you consider the audio edition of 'Tis the Season to be better than the print version?

yes and no. I love to hold a book in my hand, but when we drive, or when my girls are in bed, they don't have to stop reading when the lights are out. Also, for my younger child, she can

What was one of the most memorable moments of 'Tis the Season?

Without giving too much away, it is when 3 of the girls decide to make a special Christmas for someone who, without them, Christmas might have been lost forever. It's written in such a special way that shows compassion without pity.

Have you listened to any of Ariadne Meyers’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have listened to all the Main Street books available at Audible (see title of this post). The best thing, I think you can say about a reader is that she is very consistant. Her pace, characters, and voice quality are consistant, and that leads to a very favorable experience. This is so important when you are dealing with younger children who are not forgiving when someone changes a character's voice from one book to another.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Christmas in Camden Falls will forever be changed this year, but will it be for the better?

Any additional comments?

I urge all mothers to listen to these books with there tweenagers. Ms. Martin brings up adult themes (bullying, divorce, death, aging, special needs children, race and others) in a sensitive and positive way. These books lead to lively conversations with your children at an age when they might otherwise be tuning you out. It's a great way to see where they stand on issues, without having to ask direct questions. Thank you Ms. Martin! Please, Audible, add the other books in this series!
