Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Walter Mayes

Children Ages 4-6 • 6 mins. • Unabridged • © 2010

The father-and-daughter Emberley duo brings the well-loved story of the Little Red Hen to life once again. Such an eye-popping rendition of this familiar baking tale needs an accompanying ear-popping audio. Walter Mayes is just the narrator for the job. He enthusiastically slides up and down his register, giving voice to a hopeful and boisterous Little Red Hen and a deep-ribbeting Frog. He s-l-o-w-s as the cat and rat drag out their “not I’s” and speeds as the Little Red Hen proclaims, “Do it myself!” Jaunty music and a recipe for “simply splendid cake” complete the recording. Young listeners will return again and again to this satisfying listening package. A.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2012]
