Reviews

Gr 3-6‘Robert Lawson's Newbery award-winning Rabbit Hill (Viking, 1944; Puffin pap., 1977) is a first rate audiobook. Listeners are introduced to Uncle Analdas and his community of woodland animals who are anticipating the arrival of the "new folks," the people who are moving to Rabbit Hill. When the new folks eventually become part of the animals' lives, both benefit from their association with the other. Narrator Barbara Caruso's use of different voices and dialects enlivens the story. Although the story probably will not have broad appeal, this version would serve to enhance collections of Newbery Award winners.-Marcia Brightman, Orange Elementary Schools, MA
