"Penny comes home from school with a new and original song, but her parents just don't seem to have time to listen. The new babies are their focus, not Penny. Sleeping babies, no singing at the dinner table--there's always a reason not to hear her song. Will her glass animals appreciate her creation? Will she remember it in the morning? Cynthia Nixon's narration is tender--gentle and quiet. Her Penny voice is suitably childlike, and her parents are understandably concerned for the new siblings but loving toward Penny as they come to realize that "one is nice, two is nice, three is even better. . . " Joy abounds in a satisfying conclusion. A.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
