    With his unmistakable characters and signature rhymes, Dr. Seuss's beloved Beginner Book has cemented it's place as a children's classic. Follow Sam I Am as he tries to convince an acquaintance that green eggs and ham is, indeed, a delectable meal to be savored everywhere and every way.

    Linda says: "My preschooler's absolute FAVORITE audio book!"
    "Great starter for little ones"
    Overall

    This was the perfect starter book for my two and a half year old niece. The language seemed to move quickly for her the first time through, but she had really picked it up, repeats the language and requests it all the time. She is hooked - and it's really fun to hear Dr. Seuss read so well...I had forgotten how rythmic and entertaining his language is.

    Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could live forever? In this modern classic, Tuck Everlasting, author Natalie Babbitt explores the unforeseen complications that arise when the Tuck family unwittingly drinks from a spring of eternal life.

    Heidi says: "Kept them entertained!"
    "A treasure for all reader/listeners"
    Overall

    This book is not only beautifully written with rich figurative language and metaphor, but it is also a compelling story that pulls even reluctant readers in. I found that it worked better as an audiobook for kids who struggle with language or don't prefer descriptive books. Once students can experience the language (and aren't intimidated by it as they would be in print), you can have excellent discussions about how the symbols, imagery and metaphor enhanced the reader/listeners experience. I recommend this highly!

    Holiday gatherings can be stressful times for families, and occasionally the conversation around the holiday table can get heated. Difficult Conversations shows you a way out of this dilemma; it teaches you how to handle even the toughest conversations more effectively and with less anxiety.

    Jean-Pierre says: "A must-hear audiobook !"
    "On my short list"
    Overall

    This book is on my short list of best books. In my work as a school administrator, Difficult Conversations has given me perspective to better handle difficult conversations with parents and colleagues. Its value also extends beyond the professional realm and can be applied in all areas of my life.

    Less than half a year ago, Tony and I received a mysterious note from Jared, Simon, and Mallory Grace, three children who have experienced authentic encounters with the beings we call faeries. As hard as it was for us to believe, we came to see that there was no alternative explanation. Now, putting aside personal concerns, we bring their stories to you.

    Don says: "Excellent!"
    "Popular in the hallways"
    Overall

    Many of my grade 4 and 5 students are reading these books and, better yet, are talking about them with one another outside of their ELA classes. I am so excited to give my struggling readers a chance to know what all the buzz is about. And, it is exciting to hear other reviews and think that parents may listen and discuss these adventures with their children.
