Charon Normand-Widmer energetically narrates this story of life in a refugee camp for one imaginative little girl. Abia moves through her daily routine in Ethiopia's Shimelba Camp picturing herself a queen: strong and clever and gentle, as needed. Normand-Widmer's rich and resonant voice expresses Abia's delightful self-confidence in her current circumstances and her uneasiness as she contemplates life beyond the camp in a new forever home. Lively background music sets the tone for this audio picture book production, while well-chosen sound effects fill in the details of the illustrations. Attentive young listeners will hear sounds of wildlife and a gushing water pump, as well as a school bell and sneakers on gravel. N.M. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2020]
