THE OLD MAN AND THE SEA

THE OLD MAN AND THE SEA

Earphones Award Winner

by Ernest Hemingway | Read by Donald Sutherland

Simon & Schuster Audio
Classics
Family Listening

Donald Sutherland’s gentle and thoughtful reading of the 1952 classic is spot-on perfect. The tale concerns an old fisherman in a Cuban village who, after an especially bad fishing season, sets out in his skiff, determined to bring in a big fish. By noon, the old man hooks a great marlin, but the powerful fish drags the skiff out to sea for two days. Challenged by starvation,... Read More

TREASURE ISLAND

TREASURE ISLAND

Earphones Award Winner

by Robert Louis Stevenson | Read by Alfred Molina

Listening Library
Children
Ages 8+

Take a well-read classic filled with larger-than-life characters and pair it with a master narrator. Voilà—you’ve got a brand-new classic. Alfred Molina’s narration is like pulling up a chair next to a fire on a chilly night and being chilled all over again by Stevenson’s tale of piracy on the high seas. Molina’s portrayals are perfection. He’s a careful observer in his... Read More

David Tennant uses his Scots brogue to full enthusiastic effect as Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the Third and his Viking and dragon friends brave Driller Dragons, Red Hot Itchyworms, and the Hairy Scary Librarian to steal a book from the forbidden library. Crowell's book is silly, clever fun, and Tennant makes the most of every over-the-top character (Big-Boobied Bertha is a... Read More

CORETTA SCOTT

CORETTA SCOTT

Earphones Award Winner

by Ntozake Shange | Read by Phylicia Rashad

Weston Woods Studios
Children
Ages 4-6

Actress Phylicia Rashad beautifully proves the power of the word and the voice in this short biography of Coretta Scott King. Rashad’s clear, smooth voice delivers Shange's text with little embellishment. To praise the minimalism might mislead, as the spareness of text and expression emphasizes the power and poetry of this listening experience. The program shows a mastery of... Read More
