Brave IreneSpring 2012 Audio Book
William Steig's classic picture book Brave Irene captivates with its tale of persistence and its charming candy-colored illustrations. Like postal workers, Irene braves fierce snow and wind to deliver her package, in this case a ball gown made by her mother for the duchess. Irene's mother is too sick to make the delivery herself, and it's Irene's love for her mom that keeps her going during her difficult journey through the storm. This set pairs the book with an audio version read by none other than three-time Oscar winner Meryl Streep, whose narrative voice is rich, warm, and soothing. This is a lovely book to share with a child.
