With slow, carefully paced diction, narrator Tracey Leigh brings warmth to this audiobook about a mother and daughter enjoying their limited free time together. Ava looks forward to Saturdays, when she and her mother go to the library for story time, to the salon for new hairdos, and this week, across town to a special puppet show. But everything is going wrong as, one by one, each activity is spoiled. Leigh portrays their groaning frustration and sighing resignation as they repeat their strategy for mindfully managing disappointment: Take a deep breath and zoooom off to the next activity. Throughout the mishaps, listeners will be comforted by Leigh's calm voice repeating the mother's mantra for a splendid, special Saturday.
