BROOKLYN BRIDGE by Karen Hesse, read by Fred Berman
This moving story of Russian immigrants is set in 1903 Brooklyn. Fred Berman's strong Brooklyn accent and use of Yiddish inflection will transport listeners right into 14-year-old Joseph's neighborhood, making this a great listen for kids 10 and up.
