    Description 

    "Judd Hirsch narrates with admiration for each crew member. His voice is firm and steady as he shares both the mundane and the heroic. Sound effects of the period and the nautical and musical interludes complete the recording." AudioFile Magaine

    Review by: AudioFile Magazine - December 1, 2004
    "1931 was a banner year in New York City. Accomplishments included the height of the new Empire State Building, the length of the George Washington Bridge, and the launching of the new fireboat John J. Harvey. In her signature book (an admirable candidate for the 2002 Caldecott Medal), Maira Kalman celebrates the feats of a hard-working boat and its crew in New York Harbor of the period and now, as the restored vessel begins a new life. Kalman also pays tribute to the role the Harvey played in the days of 9/11. Judd Hirsch narrates with admiration for each crew member. His voice is firm and steady as he shares both the mundane and the heroic. Sound effects of the period and the nautical and musical interludes complete the recording."
