I have listened to audio books for many years. In my opinion, this is the single best recording of all time. It combines a gentle, funny, and poignant story with a quiet, understated, but brilliant reader. E.B. White reads his own work in his slow Maine accent. I have heard this recording dozens of times over the years with my children, and it never fails to bring tears to my eyes.
I first had this book to read to me by the second grade teacher in 1966. I am still listening to it and it is still fresh to me and to my children. You can't go wrong with this one.
