About the Author:

Vera B. Williams began her career in children’s books by illustrating Hooray for Me!, written by Remy Charlip with Lilian Moore. Her beloved A Chair for My Mother won multiple awards, including a Caldecott Honor, and “More, More, More,” Said the Baby also received a Caldecott Honor. Vera B. Williams was the recipient of the Jane Addams Children’s Book Award; she was awarded the 2009 NSK Neustadt Prize for Children’s Literature; and she was the US nominee for the Hans Christian Andersen Award in 2004. Vera B. Williams died on October 16, 2015, shortly before this book was completed.

From AudioFile:

The bouncy rhythms of the introductory composition set the mood for Martha Plimpton's lively narration of a story about a cheerful young girl and her optimistic mother and grandmother. With her youthful voice, Plimpton's bubbly reading captures a family who eagerly saves coins for a new chair after a fire has destroyed their home and furnishings. This is a layered family listen. Adults will admire the girl's waitress mother, who dreams up a playful solution for their loss, and the daughter who worries about her mother's tired feet. Children are more likely to focus on Plimpton's happy tones as Williams describe the fun of counting money into a giant jar and going to four furniture stores to find the chair, the most perfect chair in the world, the one "we were all dreaming of." S.W. AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
