Poetry & Drama Family Listening • 2 hrs. • Audio Program • © 2009

Julie Andrews and her daughter, Emma, narrate a collection of their favorite poems. Arranged by theme, such as the sea, friendship, laughter, and leisure, the poems come from both traditional and modern poets, as well as from Andrews family members. Andrews's signature elocution, shared by her daughter, and their gentle British accents are easy on the ear and, at times, carry the recording. One sometimes listens to their lilt and cadence at the expense of the poem. Vibrancy triumphs at moments when the pair read in tandem or present the unique—such as a poem about a Welsh town with a very long name. The recording provides a PDF file of the James McMullan paintings included in the print book. A.R. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2010]
