Childrens Audio Book Review: Brave Irene by William Steig

Brave Irene is Irene Bobbin, the dressmaker's daughter. Her mother, Mrs. Bobbin, isn't feeling so well and can't possibly deliver the beautiful ball gown she's made for the duchess to wear that very evening. So plucky Irene volunteers to get the gown to the palace on time, in spite of the fierce snowstorm that's brewing-- quite an errand for a little girl.
But where there's a will, there's a way, as Irene proves in the danger-fraught adventure that follows. She must defy the wiles of the wicked wind, her most formidable opponent, and overcome many obstacles before she completes her mission. Surely, this winning heroine will inspire every child to cheer her on.
Brave Irene is a 1986 New York Times Book Review Best Illustrated Book of the Year.
What a neat book!This book is intended for ages 4-8 But you can use it for older children. It is a story about a brave girl and her journey through the snow to deliver a dress. The story is well written and well executed. The storyline is easy to follow. The narrater is Meryl Streep and she does an excellent job reading this story. The Illistrations are well done and easy to look at. They are done with great colors. This story is from the grammy nominated collection of William Steig stories and he does this one very well. This one is also the Parents choice award winner. This is a story that i recommend to teach caring and bravery. I highly recommend this book. It would make a great present for birthday or holidays!
