What does Arnold Lobel bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The joy in his reading of the story.

Any additional comments?

I told my home school co-op class we were having a special guest reader...I brought in my blue tooth speaker and "viola" Arnold Lobel was our surprise guest. The kids were so excited by the narration, sound effects and musical score.

I downloaded this version for my middle school student to help with a required reading assignment. This was a wonderful tool for my student. It helped her understand the story more by hearing the narrator's inflection and emotional reading. I highly recommend using audible.com books for those struggling readers to follow along in the book while the original text is narrated.
