Publisher's Summary

Much-loved storyteller Karen Kingsbury’s Baxter Family books have captured the hearts of millions who have come to think of the Baxter family as their own. Now, Karen Kingsbury and her son Tyler Russell tell the childhood stories of the beloved Baxter children - Brooke, Kari, Ashley, Erin, and Luke - to inspire and entertain younger listeners. 

Brooke is the perfect older sister. For that reason, Kari and Ashley work hard to make their parents just as proud of them as they are of Brooke. Each girl has her own talents. Brooke is an excellent student. Kari is a great soccer player. Ashley, a talented artist. And they are always there for each other. But when the news comes that Dr. Baxter is moving the family from Ann Arbor to Bloomington, Indiana, and the Baxters need to leave the only home and friends they’ve ever known, no one is happy. Saying good-bye is hard, but the family still has what’s most important - their faith and their love for each other. 

The first audiobook in the Baxter Family Children series, number-one New York Times best-selling author Karen Kingsbury and Tyler Russell tell the story of what it was like to grow up in the Baxter family, the best family ever.

Great listen for driving to and from school.

This book was great. It was sweet to hear about the Baxters as children. My son (7) and daughter (5) loved it. They asked me to put it on as soon as we got into the car. They are excited for the next book in the series. Karen is so an amazing writer.

Great book

I recommend this book and all Karen Kingsbury’s books. This one is so fun and cool filling in all the history of the early years of the Baxter family. It was nice seeing their personalities start developing at such a young age. It is definitely just like your own families stories of life start out. I can’t say anything negative about it. I really enjoyed it. Shelley
