    Story
    (23)

    Doctor Dolittle, a little, lovable, old doctor, has so many animal pets spread throughout his house and garden that patients will not come to him anymore. As a result, he becomes poorer and poorer. But he occupies nearly all of his time as the animals' doctor, and soon discovers that he can talk to the animals; Jip the dog, Dab Dab the duck, and Polynesia the parrot.

    "Terrific!"
    Overall

    My 6 yo boy and 4 yo daughter enjoyed this immensely, recounting it excitedly to their dad each night at the dinner table. Excellent narration complementing a delightful fast-paced story.

    When Annette gets Lucien into trouble at school, he decides to get back at her by threatening the most precious thing in the world to her: her little brother Dani. But tragedy strikes. Annette knows she can never forgive Lucien for what he did to Dani, and she is going to make sure that no one else does either. She is so filled with rage that she sets out to alienate and humiliate Lucien at every turn. But then some surprising things began to happen to both of them.

    Story

    This is a beautifully-written and narrated story of forgiveness, redemption and love. It took over 30 minutes for my 8 year old boy to be drawn in (although my 6 year old girl was drawn in instantly); however, after that point, we were all riveted, inspired and eager to listen to the story each step of the way.

    Story

    The good Doctor Dolittle, accompanied by his devoted animal friends, sets sail once again. This time it is a voyage of discovery, to learn the secret of the Shellfish language, and to teach Tommy Stubbins, the Doctor's young protege, all there is to know about animals and their languages. Choosing their destination by opening an atlas, closing their eyes, and touching the page with a pencil, they set off on the most amazing voyage.

    Amy H says: "A delightful travel log"
    "Difficult to understand"
    Overall

    My children have repeatedly listened to the Story of Doctor Dolittle and have found it very easy to follow (age range 4-7). Nadia Mays has a very delightful, warm, and crisp presentation. However, this narrator has a very "gravelly" voice, which makes his words difficult to understand. My children can't follow it at all, despite my attempts to present it to them on numerous occasions. This is unfortunate, because this book is intended for a younger audience.

    Story

    Since its publication in 1952, Charlotte's Web has become one of America's best-loved children's books. For fifty years, this timeless story of the pig named Wilbur and the wise spider named Charlotte who saved him has continued to warm the hearts of readers everywhere. This 1953 Newbery Honor Book comes to life in a delightful unabridged recording, read lovingly by the author himself.

    Richard says: "Some book"
    "Wonderfully warm and sweet!"
    Overall

    My 6 yo (active) boy didn't want to do anything else until he had completed listening to this story. He requested that we listen to it while eating dinner, and then he wanted to listen to it the first thing upon waking the next morning, etc. I heard bits and pieces as I was moving about, completing chores, and its sweetness brought me to tears.
