Siiri Scott narrates this audiobook encouraging adults to reread seven classic children's novels: HEIDI, LITTLE WOMEN, ANNE OF GREEN GABLES, THE HOBBIT, THE SILVER CHAIR, A LITTLE PRINCESS, and EMILY OF DEEP VALLEY. Scott's friendly tone is engaging and pleasant as she delivers Mitali Perkins's thoughtful discussion of the flaws and merits of these older titles. Perkins's work is grounded in her Christian faith, so it's forgiving, though not dismissive, of prejudice in these older titles. It is also overtly religious, with frequent Bible quotes and one lengthy prayer. Scott maintains a conversational manner throughout. Chapters highlight the virtues of faith, hope, temperance, prudence, love, courage, and justice, and contain writing prompts and discussion questions. Be ready to take notes.
