Family Listening -- Ages 13 and up
Newbery Medal-winner Paul Fleischman writes a profoundly moving story of connectedness -- to oneself, to others and to nature. 16 year old Brent Bishop commits a drastic act without thought of how far-reaching the results could be. Weaving four other voices in and out of Brent's story, Fleischman reveals to what extent his actions can impact the lives of strangers -- even years later. This is a story of a young soul's journey of self-discovery -- a story ultimately of hope and promise.
Narrated by age-appropriate actors, Whirligig offers the listeners a stunningly authentic experience. 3.5 hours.
