Here are four of your favorite Arnold Lobel stories together in one audio collection! From Owl's surprising house-guest to the small pig's quest for the perfect mud puddle, Arnold Lobel's stories are filled with one-of-a-kind characters, and more than a little silliness too.

Given my daughter's (who is almost 3) love affair with the Frog & Toad audio collection, I downloaded this one in an attempt to add more variety to my commutes. This series has been another huge hit. Included are the stories of Owl at home, Grasshopper on the Road, Uncle Elephant, and the Small Pig.
Of these, "The Small Pig" suffers somewhat because it's obvious that some meaning was conveyed in the illustrations that is lost to the listener. However, that hasn't stopped my daughter from requesting it over and over again.
The narration of these stories is excellent, and the content and length are perfect for younger listeners.
This was the first audio book my son enjoyed. We began listening when he was 3.5 and he is almost 5- now his little brother (2.5) loves it too.
