Critic Reviews

"Children will love these clever poems and without prompting will probably create their own, unaware that they are focusing on a key reading skill: phonemic awareness. This is a treasure." (School Library Journal)

WHAT A GREAT AUDIO!!!

It's such a pleasure to hear a new Shel Silverstein poem. The reader has such fun with the funny words and words play that I laughed and laughed and laughed. The characters are cute and silly and my children loved it. I have to recommend this title to all parents and children, especially if they already have the book so they can read along. CLASSIC!

So much fun!

Where does Runny Babbit rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I have many Shel Silverstein book and read them to my children when they were small. They still enjoy them.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Runny Babbit?

I love Runny Babbit's sea poup. ;-)

What about Dennis Locorriere’s performance did you like?

What a great job. I was never able to read this smoothly to my children. I can't believe Dennis can keep from getting his tongue tied! I love it!!
