    "The Swiss Family Robinson" by Wyss and Son is a novel, intended to teach Wyss' four sons about family values, good husbandry, the uses of the natural world and self-reliance. Wyss' attitude toward education is in line with the teachings of Jean-Jacques Rousseau, and many of the episodes have to do with Christian-oriented moral lessons such as frugality, husbandry, acceptance, cooperation, etc. The adventures are presented as a series of lessons in natural history and the physical sciences, and resemble other, similar educational books for children in this period.

Excerpt from the book: "When a child can look at a steel pen not simply as an article furnished by the city for his use, but rather as the result of many interesting processes, he has made a distinct growth in intelligence. When he has begun to apprehend the fruitfulness of the earth, and the best way in which its products may be utilized, he has not only acquired a knowledge of many kinds of industrial life, but he has learned the necessity of peaceful intercourse."

    "Just So Stories for Little Children" is a collection of origin myths. The Just So Stories each tell how a particular animal was modified from an original form to its current form by the acts of man, or some magical being. For example, the Whale has a tiny throat because he swallowed a mariner, who tied a raft inside to block the whale from swallowing other men. The Camel has a hump given to him by a djinn as punishment for the camel's refusing to work (the hump allows the camel to work longer between times of eating).

    "Through the Looking-Glass" is a novel by Lewis Carroll. The themes and settings make it a kind of a mirror image of "Alice in Wonderland": it begins outdoors, uses frequent changes in size, and draws on the imagery of playing cards; the Looking-Glass opens indoors, uses frequent changes in time and spatial directions, and draws on the imagery of chess. In it, there are many mirror themes, including opposites, time running backwards, and so on. So this audiobook is based on a game of chess, played on a giant chessboard with fields for squares.
