The best.

Arnold Lobel is great story teller and the reading by Mark Lin-Baker is inspired. If you are an aging gen Xer like me you may remember him as the straight man on ABC's epic sitcom "Perfect Strangers". That's right it's cousin Larry. Don't be fooled by the light fare of that show MLB is a very talented performer with range and energy. He also happen to have married Lobels daughter and his love of the stories (and Lobel i think) comes through beautifully crafted.

Regarding the language of Lobels stories, it is definitely well thought out and driven by developmental science. I remember his books being the first I read with compound words silent e's and consonant blends. He makes it easy to understand and just from reading along with the records (i had it on vinyl... Before it was cool) i learned these types of word structures and so much more.

My son who is just turning 5 is on the autism spectrum and is pre-verbal (just about to talk but not yet). we have been listening to this and the "frog and toad " collection for a couple years now.
Just the other day before bedtime {when we listen to this) he looked at my wife and said "I like owl"

Awwwww.... ComeOn!!
