Product Description

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-5–Virginia Sorensen's 1957 Newbery Award winner (Harcourt, 1956) is skillfully dramatized by a cast of experienced narrators. This is a loving family saga about Marley, brother Joe, their parents, and their friends. When Marley's father returns home from World War II a broken man physically and spiritually, her mother decides that the family needs to leave the city for an extended visit to Grandma's house in the country. Listeners are drawn into the tale of a year in the life of this family as the father slowly regains his strength and confidence. The year is filled with small miracles from the first spring blossoms to the healing of their beloved neighbor, Mr. Chris. Narrated by Cynthia Bishop and dramatized by the Full Cast Family, each character is brought to life and given a unique personality and voice. Their expert narration brings this inspiring American classic to life. So many children today have parents who are part of the war effort overseas that this somewhat old-fashioned, half-century old story is still relevant for youngsters today.–Wendy Woodfill, Hennepin County Library, Minnetonka, MN

3.0 out of 5 stars Adequate July 15 2003
Format:Paperback
Somewhat interesting period piece with "back-to-the-farm" as its basis. Think: "Field of Dreams" but with maple syrup as the common theme ("If you tap them, they will come"?). Also, the book addresses adult subjects such as psychological damage from WW II in a very matter-of-fact and appropriate way. However, the book doesn't really deliver anything extraordinary. OK for your 10-year-old girl to read, or to read to her. Not on par with "Little House in the Big Woods" or "The Young Master."

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Book Feb. 16 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Miracles on Maple Hill is great for kids because it's about kids. Marly is a girl who is experiencing the Miracles on Maple Hill. Every season there's a different miracle, weather it's gathering sap from the maple trees,or watching the flowers bloom. Meeting many different friends, Marly and her brother Joe go on many adventures on Maple Hill. I think that it is a great book for kids to read because it is somthing to look forward to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Book! April 8 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I can't say anymore than that!The experiences of a family helping old friends with their maple syrup crop are told from the little girls point of view. The descriptions of the countryside, it's flowers, trees, animals are so vivid and beautiful! Get your flora and fauna guides out for this one! It's a charming story with happy ending. Is there a sequal?

5.0 out of 5 stars I read this book when I was younger.... Dec 7 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I read this book when I was younger and fell in love with it. I live in rural Pennsylvania and it reminds me so much of home. I just bought it for my niece for Christmas and I know she'll love it just as much as I do.
