Whenever I'm tempted to deal harshly with my students, or become frustrated with my co-workers, I listen to this classic book again. The simple strategies are masterfully presented. They work beautifully.
Andrew MacMillan's voice is pleasant and authoritative.
I have listened to this story many times. It gets better every time. If you live in South Florida, this story will connect you with the land in a special way.
No matter how many times I listen to this, I love it.
I imagine Dickens himself must have sounded just like Martin Jarvis.
I love Maya Angelou!
Her voice and her story are incredible. Listening to her tell it is like having my own private sessions with this incredible woman.
Crazy Loco is one of the novels in the Hampton Brown "Edge A" reading curriculum. The book is appropriate for my hispanic lower-functioning teenaged readers. While it is not gripping literature, it is amusing and it did teach me more about my students' cultural backgrounds.
Joe Rodriguez does a fine job with the performance.
