by | Read by Lynn Redgrave

Children Ages 4-6+ • 30 min. • Unabridged • © 2005

Lynn Redgrave is an inspired choice as narrator of this expansive collection of 100 Mother Goose rhymes. Her expressive voice brings to life all the well-known characters (Humpty Dumpty, Jack and Jill, Little Bo-Peep) while introducing you to a few you may not have met (like Little Poll Parrot and Terrence McDiddler). She brings drama and dignity even to the shortest and silliest verses, which are interspersed with occasional gentle guitar music. If you are listening with little children, you'll want to skip the academic introduction read by Leonard S. Marcus (critic of children's literature). It stands in humorous contrast to the short and snappy rhymes themselves (averaging 10-15 seconds) that follow. J.C.G. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 06]
