Egg Marks the Spot (Skunk and Badger 2)

By Amy Timberlake
Narrated by: Michael Boatman
Length: 3 hours 54 minutes

Egg Marks the Spot (Skunk and Badger 2)

“Skunk and Badger are back in book two of Amy Timberlake's new middle-grade series. Jon Klassen's illustrations bring this animal buddy book to life as both friends wrestle with a nagging issue in this installment. Badger yearns for his stolen Spider Eye Agate while Skunk is more than upset that someone is consistently snitching the New Yak Times Book Review. Egg Marks the Spot is a book that parents and caregivers will look forward to reading aloud, though I suggest you find an inquisitive grade-schooler to do the honors.”

Barefoot Dreams of Petra Luna

By Alda P. Dobbs
Narrated by: Ana Osorio
Length: 5 hours 15 minutes

Barefoot Dreams of Petra Luna

“I read this Fourth of July weekend which was the perfect book to give me a different perspective on what America means to a family fleeing a war-torn country in search of a better life. Dobbs' great-grandmother inspired this heart-wrenching, incredible story of 12 yo Petra Luna's "barefoot dreams" of learning to read and write and protecting her family. I loved the earnest determination and bravery of Petra, her closeness with her 2 younger siblings, and how her abuelita taught her to listen to the natural world to survive the harsh desert conditions to make their way to the U.S. border. It was such a beautiful mix of mythology and holding tight to dreams. The war brutality was presented realistically--the danger wasn't glossed over, but instead presented in a child-thoughtful way. I learned so much about a time in history that I didn't know much about. My 10 year-old daughter and I highly recommend!”

Cloud Cuckoo Land

A Novel

By Anthony Doerr
Narrated by: Marin Ireland & Simon Jones
Length: 14 hours 51 minutes

If you enjoyed Cloud Atlas, then you’ll love Cloud Cuckoo Land.

“Highly imaginative and incredibly ambitious, Cloud Cuckoo Land is a story within a story that is about stories. Though the premise, like the title, sounds maddening, I found Anthony Doerr’s novel to be rich, intricate, and deeply profound. Like the thread that binds together a vibrant tapestry, the story within the story, also named Cloud Cuckoo Land, weaves the tales of Anna, Omeir, Zeno, Seymour, and Konstance as it defies time and space to ensure their stories endure. A love letter to the tales that have survived the cruel test of time and to the stories that take us away to magical realms above our own, those who’ve read Cloud Atlas and The Ten Thousand Doors of January will take pleasure and delight in Cloud Cuckoo Land. Marin Ireland and Simon Jones' narrations were the cherry on the cake, making the story all the better for their lively and delightful voices.”
