Four of Arnold Lobel's beloved books originally published in the I Can Read Book series—OWL AT HOME (1975), GRASSHOPPER ON THE ROAD (1978), SMALL PIG (1969), and UNCLE ELEPHANT (1981)—are narrated superbly by Mark Linn-Baker. He gives the characters distinct voices as they worry over and resolve their small problems. The warm, gentle humor of the stories comes across well in Linn-Baker’s narration. His unhurried pacing and careful delivery make this collection the perfect model for how these books for beginning readers should be read aloud. After listening to this audio collection, families will want to take a trip to the library to check out the books so that they can enjoy Lobel's equally wonderful illustrations. C.R.A.
