Please let me know your opinions on any of these books I have on audio. I don’t know if they are worth keeping even though they are Newbery Award or Honor and what ages for the audio. I like more conservative titles. Please let me know of any issues to watch for. Thanks.

Roll of Thunder Hear My Cry by Mildred Taylor

Not Newbery: Open Heart, Open Home by Karen MainsMelanie32Participant
Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry is excellent but does deal with some tough issues.
I read Dicey’s Song when I was a kid and I think there may be some issues there. The mom abandons the kids and they have to make their way, on their own, to a distant and unknown relative. This one obviously deals with tough issues as well.
I haven’t read any of the others. Hopefully others can help with those!Wings2flyParticipant
Thanks, Melanie. I am thinking that maybe I shouldn’t keep any of these. Any other opinions?
