Collection Development Inspire bravery and kindness with Lynda Mullaly Hunt’s audiobooks

As bestselling author Lynda Mullaly Hunt told Brightly in an interview, “one of the things that has made me happy as an author is that my books have allowed children to develop empathy for themselves. There are a lot of kids beating themselves up over perceived faults and we need to teach kids that failure is not to be feared or avoided. Encountering failure means you’re challenging yourself. It means you’re brave.”

We’re thrilled that Hunt has a new bestseller, SHOUTING AT THE RAIN, read on audio by Lisa Cordileone. Offer Hunt’s books on audio to reach even more kids (and adults!) in your community who perhaps need to feel a bit more brave, and to help start important conversations about empathy and kindness—both kindness toward yourself and others.

Fish in a Tree
Author: Lynda Mullaly Hunt
Read by: Kathleen McInerney
LISTEN TO A CLIP: audio
“Narrator McInerney performs the many sixth-grade characters with youthful voices that are easy to differentiate…A letter from the author to readers, read by McInerney, is included at the end of the audiobook. Families may enjoy listening to this on road trips and discussing the raised issues of tolerance and kindness in school settings.”—Booklist

“Kathleen McInerney’s reading effectively captures the characters’ personalities: Ally’s insecurity, Keisha’s confidence, science-loving Alfred’s robot-like affect, and their snarky classmate, hard-to-like Shay. Adult characterizations also ring true from the concern of Ally’s mother to Mr. Daniels’s creativity and enthusiasm. The conclusion is both plausible and satisfying. A letter to readers from the author (and read by her) adds a touching personal dimension to the subject of learning differences. VERDICT Recommended for any student who sometimes feels like an outcast, especially those who face learning challenges.”—School Library Journal

“This recording will allow access to the novel for those who have trouble reading, and that is exactly the audience that might want to hear this moving account.”—Horn Book

“McInerney balances the heartfelt emotions about struggle and friendship with a distinctive portrayal of every character, adding depth to the story.”—AudioFile

One for the Murphys
Author: Lynda Mullaly Hunt
Read by: Nora Hunter
LISTEN TO A CLIP: audio
“Narrator Nora Hunter captures Carley’s conflicted emotions—her snarky side and her unvoiced but obvious fears…Hunter’s portrayal of the warm, caring Julie Murphy contradicts Carley’s perceptions, and Carley’s mother’s hardness. As the story and characters evolve, so do their painful dissonances and their eventual heartbreaking understandings.”—AudioFile Earphones Award
