Great Short Stories

These stories are all about children with challenges and the triumph they experience as a result of their condition or after they come to terms with it.

I enjoyed them and they all sent a very good, positive message to those of us (who doesn't?) who deal with real physical or mental challenges each day. I am considering attempting to get my son with asperger's syndrome to listen to it. He is at the age where his condition sometimes frustrates him to the point that he 'hates being autistic'. He struggles with abstract concepts but I think these stories could at least be a conversation starter for us.

The narration was steady and clear and well paced.

I received this audiobook for free from Audiobook Boom! in exchange for an honest review.

Great stories, great narrator

Check my other reviews and you will see that I don't normally rate everything a 5 but this little book earned it.

Each story was interesting on its own - there are 6 in this 90 minute book so no story was very long. I loved the first story but they are all good. They were well crafted and sufficient unto themselves but were also so good and interesting that I wanted each to go on longer - I wanted to hear/learn more about the characters.

I can't say enough good about the narrator. Perfect pacing, good characterizations, no distracting goofs - I will be looking at other books Suzanne Barbetta has narrated because she is that good - I want to hear more of her.
