Great Book

Where does Sarah, Plain and Tall rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I have to say after reading this book I felt like I would like to be Sarah, The book just make you feel all warm.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Sarah, Plain and Tall?

When She got off the train... and then when she and Papa got married.....

Have you listened to any of Glenn Close’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

The book's title is the best tag line, for movie or book

I love this book

I bought it for my granddaughter. She needed to read it for summer reading list for school. I loved it as much as she did. We just finished listening to it again LOL This is our fourth time through LOL I recommend for young readers. This is 1st book in a 4 book series. This book is from Anna's point of view. Anna is about 9 or 10 years old. The paper version is an easy reader level for 2nd or 3rd grade readers. Glenn Close is an excellent narrator.
