Appleblossum the Possum: A Book for the WHOLE family

Appleblossom the PossumAppleblossom the Possum by Holly Goldberg Sloan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I am constantly forcing my kids to listen to audio books as we drive around town or take care trips. I refuse to give in to TV’s and video games in the backseat. I just won’t do it!

However finding books that both kids (a 6 yr old girl and 9 year old boy) and I ALL like can be a challenge. Applebloosom Possum is DEFINITELY a cool all three of us enjoyed.

The story is about a group of young possums and their experience e of growing up. There are several comic elements that adults will appreciate. For example, the possums are trained in acting, ie playing possum. They quote Shakespeare and one of the siblings is named Amlet.

There are very funny parts about the different kinds of monsters the possums encounter…I don’t want to give it away.

Additionally, the audio version is read by Dustin Hoffman and he does a great job bringing the story and characters to life.

I certainly recommend this book as a fun family read.
