Meet Miss Jennie at Ontario Branch!
"Favorite children's author = a very hard decision, but I think I would have to pick J.K. Rowling. I am currently on my fourth reading of the Harry Potter series and the more times I read the books, the more I love them! I love the characters, the magic and all the adventures that take place in the Harry Potter book series."
"Favorite subject in school = High School French 1-4. Not only was it really fun learning another language, we did a lot of fun activities in the class and the teacher was awesome!"
Miss Jennie would like to recommend these juvenile audiobooks!
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling
Read by Jim Dale; 8 hours
Recommended for ages 8 & up
I have been hooked on this whole book series since it first came out! I love reading it myself (and have several times) but I enjoy listening to the audio books even more! I love how the reader, Jim Dale, changes his voice for each of the characters - I love just sitting with my eyes closed listening to all the adventures Harry, Ron and Hermoine experience in not only this book, but all of them!
The Mouse and the Motorcycle by Beverly Cleary
Read by B.D. Wong; 2 hours
Recommended for ages 8 to 12
This is one of those oldie but goodie books! First published in 1965, this is a story that I have loved since I was a kid! I remember reading this when I was younger, I read it to my oldest son when he was 7 years old and I have recently enjoyed listening to the audio book of this story with my 2 youngest kids. Somehow the adventures, or rather misadventures, of Ralph S. Mouse and the shiny red toy motorcycle always make me laugh!
