Miss Mary would like to recommend these juvenile audiobooks!
Queen of the Falls by Chris Van Allsburg
Read by Angela Goethals; 30 minutes
Recommended for ages 7 & up
Sixty-two-year-old Annie Edson Taylor was without a job and with very little money left in her savings when she decided to be the first person to take the plunge over Niagara Falls in a barrel. The year was 1901 when she attempted this daredevil attempt to achieve fame and fortune. Does she make it over the falls or does she fall to her death? This audio book is short but weaves a fascinating tale of the “Queen of the Falls.”
The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate
Read by Adam Grupper; 3 hours, 45 minutes
Recommended for ages 8 & up
Ivan is a gorilla who has lived almost his entire existence in a circus housed inside a mall. For the last 27 years, he has performed 3 shows daily, 365 days a year. Ivan barely remembers his young life with his gorilla family before the circus, only his life in his personal domain at the mall surrounded by his TV and a few other animal friends. The tale of Ivan is based on a true story and is truly an enjoyable tale for animal lovers of all ages. It is a perfect book to listen to when traveling because the story will hold everyone’s interest and is a simple tale to follow.
