Review by: AudioFile Magazine - October 1, 2003
"Amber Brown exhibits familiar back-to-school jitters, ranging from anticipating a brand new teacher to agonizing over backpack styles. As the appointed hour approaches, her fragile hold on herself weakens. Dana Lubotsky takes her cues from Amber Brown's personality. She narrates with a no-nonsense, brisk pacing that is so like Amber, who charts a course and follows through with determination that both she AND the rest of the world can be right. Lubotsky exudes Amber's sparkle as her confidence grows. Danziger's beginning reader is brimming with energy for both narrator and listener."
Review by: School Library Journal - September 1, 2003
"Get ready for almost 15 minutes of pure fun as listeners become engrossed in this delightful production of Paula Danziger's beginning reader (Putnam, 2002), part of the A is for Amber series. Danziger capitalizes on every child's fear of the unknown -- in this case, the anxiety of having a new teacher. Amber lives all the uncertainties of a new grade and a new school year on the first morning of second grade. Both her parents are reassuring, and she can count on her friend Justin's jokes to lighten the mood. When she arrives on the playground, she finds that her classmates are predictably the same as ever, and as she spends the morning in the classroom, she is enchanted by her new second grade teacher, Ms. Light. Narrator Dana Lubotsky's rendition of Amber rings true, and she delivers a genuinely convincing' performance as the precocious second grader. One side of the tape includes a turn-page signal and the other does not. Lubotsky's light-hearted style makes it easy to read along with the tape, and the background music arid sound effects complete the mood. Youngsters will identify with Amber and her woes, and will want to listen again and again. A useful purchase for primary grade audiobook beginning reader collections in school and public libraries."
