we read this twice and truly enjoyed it twice! the book is already a warm and a real page turner. but once you add the voices you were able to receive the full experience.
I wanted to give up listening early in because of the voice of the main character - think adult female imitating a deformed child with a cold. The other character voices were okay, so that helped. The story is really cute, though, so I'm glad I stuck it out.
excellent story, voices, and the written narratives take you to different points of view that really deepen the story. as a whole, this is a brilliant story, that everyone in our long road trip enjoyed, from 6 years old to adults. our 11 year old particularly enjoyed it.
The part about Daisy and then Bear, plus when they went on the camping trip and some kids stood up for Auggie, and then the graduation.
When everyone at the end was cheering for Auggie when he won the award!
The sound of Auggie's voice and everyone else's voice.
When the boys stood up for Auggie at the camp out while they were watching the movie.
Must read the book!
what a great story of bravery. we can all learn a lesson on how to treat other people from the characters in the book. I loved it!
