[Editors Note: This is a combined review with WHEN WE WERE VERY YOUNG.] This program exemplifies the potential quality audio has for complementing text. Soothing music introduces and links the stories and verses. Subtle sounds of nature immerse the listener in Pooh's world and provide a backdrop for Peter Dennis's enchanting performance. Dennis's ability to switch characters and moods allows him to accurately portray the range of characters in the stories--from the melancholy sound of Eeyore's voice to Pooh's empty-headed speech. These talents shine prominently in the "When We Were Very Young" poems. Dennis expresses the multitude of emotions in a child-like tone which is key to the success of the program. All ages will enjoy this marvelous performance of Milne's words. M.P.T. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JAN 94]
