    Join in some Wild West escapades with the original cowboy, Pecos Bill. Raised by coyotes, Pecos rides his wild mustang, invents the first rough-and-tumble cattle drive, and mounts a runaway cyclone to create the Great Salt Lake.

    Overall

    This tall Texas tale is a personal favorite western story I recommend you listen to, fellers. This legendary Texas tale is told, like nobody else can tell it the way he can, by Robin Williams. You'll find out how the first cattle drive was invented, how Bill was raised by coyotes, and how he rode a wild cyclone.

    I loved the way Williams told the story of Pecos Bill with a twanggy sort of accent the way most Texans speak. Saddle up your horse and prepare for a classic tale from the Wild West--a good ol' story ya'll never forget. Yee-ha!

    With so much to do on her first day of school, Emily feels like it will take forever to reach 100, when her teacher announces they will have a party after 100 days. As the days and weeks go by, Emily and her new classmates learn new ideas, expand their world, and grow closer together one day at a time.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Emily's First 100 Days Of School to be better than the print version?

    The audio version of this book is just as good as the print version. Try also looking for the video version of this book at your library. The video adaptation has extra monologue not heard in the audiobook version.


    What other book might you compare Emily's First 100 Days Of School to and why?

    I also recommend with this book "Otto Runs for President" because both titles are by the same author, Rosemary Wells.


    Have you listened to any of Diana Canova’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I also heard Diana Canova narrate "Otto Runs for President". She does an excellent job at reading Rosemary Wells' books.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    There is already a video version of the book. I knew I'd find the story of "Emily's First 100 Days of School" brought to life somehow.


    Any additional comments?

    "Emily's First 100 Days of School" is a great book I know anyone can "count" on.

    The vain Ichabod Crane sets out on a ghostly Halloween-night ride with the Headless Horseman hot on his trail.

    Overall

    The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is the most popular ghost story of all time. It's about a school master who basically meets up with a rich girl. Someone else wants her hand in marriage, but the school master keeps admiring her. In the tale, he gets chased by the Headless Horseman and some people believe he was gone forever. Some legend!

    Perfect for Halloween or a dark and stormy night, Sleepy Hollow is the right tale to listen to if you believe in ghosts.

    Frog and Toad, those famous pals, are beloved by generations of children. Their every adventure is filled with the magic of true friendship, whether they're telling ghost stories, searching for a lost button, or eating too many cookies. This captivating audio collection features all four of the Frog and Toad books, read with humor and charm by award-winning author Arnold Lobel.

    Overall

    I liked listening to Arnold Lobel's stories about Frog and Toad when I was little. This is the complete collection where you can hear all four Frog and Toad books. Don't waste your credits or money buying the books separately. Buy the complete collection and you can save a lot on Lobel's popular books.
