  • Brooklyn Bridge by Karen Hesse--Audiobook Excerpt

    Listen to an audiobook excerpt from Karen Hesse's children's book Brooklyn Bridge, read by Fred Berman. It's the summer of 1903 in Brooklyn and all fourteen-year-old Joseph Michtom wants is to experience the thrill, the grandeur, and the electricity of the new amusement park at Coney Island. But that doesn't seem likely. Ever since his parents—Russian immigrants—invented the stuffed Teddy Bear five months ago, Joseph's life has turned upside down.
