JOHN HENRY

by | Read by Samuel L. Jackson

Children • 19 min. • Unabridged • © 1994

With talented readers, original musical and realistic sound effects, Weston Woods Studios elevates the read-along to a new height. This studio production of a celebrated and award-winning children's favorite, packaged with a hardcover book, will enchant listeners and create new audiences. Samuel L. Jackson's down-home reading of Julius Lester's 1995 Caldecott Honor Book, JOHN HENRY, is energetic and inviting. String-plucked blues accompany the tall tale of the African-American hero who proved his worth against a machine. Jackson's vigorous narration, including the booming voice of the Almighty Himself, combines with plentiful, authentic sound effects to introduce a celebrated American hero.
