Marvin's a new first-grader who is having difficulty learning to read. Christina Moore reads slowly, plodding along almost painfully. It's not surprising that this does nothing to engage children in the story. There are cute sound effects of kids' voices and sprightly music. Marvin's teacher and father do teach him how to read, and he gains self-confidence by the end of the story. A.G.H. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 03/JAN 04]
