There's a wonderful recording of Newbery Medal winner Kate DiCamillo's The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane that's guaranteed to delight 7- to 10-year-olds and everyone else who listens. It's the timeless tale of an elegant, arrogant china rabbit with fine clothes and a gold pocket watch who takes love for granted. Then, in a reversal of fortune, Edward learns about love, loss, hope and opening your heart. Narrated by Judith Ivey, who makes you remember the true joys of being read to and of hearing improbable endings.
