    "The Second in the Catwings Adventures"

    I'm going to cut and paste a large portion of my review from Catwings. My 8 year-old daughter has a type of auditory processing disorder. She's multiple grade levels ahead in reading and reading comp, but when she takes in auditory information, her mind's a blank.

    I bought this short and all the other catwings titles Audible has available because I love Ursula Le Guin's adult stories, and because these are so short, which may be a turn-off for some. But though they're short, they are rich in imagery, vocabulary, and interest. I didn't want anything infantile for my daughter, because she is such a strong reader.

    In this story, the catwings have decided to return to the city to check on their beloved mother and what they find terrifies and delights them. The story is intriguing and we were just as captivated by it as we were by the first of the stories.

    The catwings are charming creatures. They're exploring their unusual gifts the same as the reader is and they do it with courage, and loyalty to each other. They face challenges, adventures, perils, and it makes for exciting listening.

    Ursula Le Guin has a grandmotherly quality to her voice which is pleasant. It almost feels as though you're sitting at the feet of Grams while she spins a wonderful yarn.

    As a sidenote, I found that her school performance was better after having listening to one of these stories. Now that we've blown thru these three stories in a week, I'm on a desperate hunt for a similar listening adventure.
