Publisher's Summary

Every-child experiences are refreshingly depicted with reassurance, humor, and sensitivity in these satisfying stories. Award-winning narrator Laura Hamilton gives a delightful voice to the delicious character of Vera, a winning little girl whose stories of typical childhood experiences make every child feel special!

Being sick is no fun, and the thoughtful story When Vera Was Sick perfectly captures the tedium and discomfort of Vera's illness, as well as her family's loving attempts to console her. Listeners will share Vera's joy at the end when she finally feels well enough to go outside and play!

In Vera Runs Away, first-grader Vera feels under-appreciated when she comes home with straight A's and her family is too busy to notice. When she returns home, it is to a warm welcome and an apology, but also to a gentle lesson that "When you do well, you are doing well for yourself."
