    "Love this book!!!!!!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Love the history in this book. Good for children to hear how it was to be a slave.

    Story
    "LOVED this!"
    If you could sum up Addy in three words, what would they be?

    Smart, resourceful, thoughtful


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Addy?

    When she learned what having a true friend meant.


    What does Cynthia Adams bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She is spectacular at changing voices, providing accents, and demonstrating the emotion in the passage. Soooo well done! We loved her voice!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made us gag when Addy had to eat the worms she'd missed on the tobacco plants. It made us cry when Addy's brother and father were sold and when Addy and her mother had to leave Esther and her aunt and uncle. It made us rejoice when the family was slowly reunited. Beautiful story!


    Any additional comments?

    Loved the story! Loves the narrator! Thank you for offering this selection.

    Story
    "My 8 yr old daughter didn't want to stop listening"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Addy to be better than the print version?

    This was a great book for my daughter to read along with her 6 book series.She finished the books within two weeks. I've tried to get her to read them on her own for a year! Audio books really open up the world of reading for kids who have a hard time staying focused, and saves parents Voices in more ways than one :)
