Review:
This gentle, early Beverly Cleary book, about a skinny little third-grader named Ellen Tibbits, with a lively narration by Andrea Martin, is set in a world without cell phones, iPods and computers. Young listeners will have to go to grandma, or great-grandma to have Ellen's much-loathed winter "union suit"-underwear that buttons up the front and across the back-explained to them, but they'll have no trouble identifying with Ellen's ups and downs as she navigates through ballet class, school anxiety, and finding and keeping a best friend.
