A wonderful short story everyone/family should read/hear. Having Morgan Freeman tells the tale making it all the more mesmerizing.. From the quail calls, to the tap, tap tapping on the gate, it's a story all should hear, all should know. My kids now look up and say "look the drinking gourd".
You feel s though you are there, as if you're part of the tory
There is absolutely something enchanting & rather intoxicating about John Lithgow's voice. His narration is reminiscent of 'dear ole Dad' giving a bit of information about each piece & it's author; but never too much too bore, yet enough to enlighten & entice you to want more.
The kids actually WANT to hear it so much so that we now have a nightly 'read'. The poetry is always varied, making it always new sounding & exciting to young & older ears alike. It's a wonderful thing to be able to say "the kids want to hear poetry each night"! It's kind of funny, I always feel like I'm "tricking" people into believing this, as if maybe I'm referring to some children's stories that can be considered poetry. Not the case! This is the real deal, with poets both old & new. They have even looked up different poets after hearing them in this to hear more of their works. Now if that's not an EXCELLENT poetry book, to inspire even the youngest of us, what is?
Thank-you for such a great 'book', the memorable nights, & opening the children's minds to thoroughly enjoy poetry!
I hope this helps you, & you give a listen. (Click Yes below if it helps you decide-thanks:)
Michio Kaku is one of The most influential and awe inspiring minds today. His manner and style makes his scientific writings easily understood, and thought provoking. This book is a great example of his profound mind and capability to share his knowledge in an easy to grasp manner
Not about the language is it as the program, it had little content compared to other language leanrng books.
Not the best format for learning foreign languages. I found it not as easy as say the Pimleur's methods. Wouldnt recommend for ppl like sslf
While the first volume does have a bit on & on about the Pimleur's technique of learning, I must say it did seem more effective, easier to learn than other language books I've tried to read. While its the first volume, I must say I did come away with some understanding. Not bad for a first go of it!
There was much more regarding the teaching techniques,then there was actual content, Perhaps in different volumes it gets better, but this is my review of the first volume.
Grimms fairy tales is wonderfully narrated, and a great choice of books for childrn, since many of the new modern classics seem to have overshadowed them The kids still gather when played
The grinch has now become a holiday classic loved by all ages. the narration is great, and the children all gather round......
