Something good has happened to the world: a nonfiction, family book on values has hit the best-seller list. Former Secretary of Education William Bennett's purpose is to help adults teach kids moral development through classic literature. Abridged audio furthers this lofty goal. The program consists of classic stories retold by popular actors. Bennett himself interjects commentary, which knits the stories together. Bennett (or more likely his producers) calls on Tom Selleck, Dana Ivey, Michael York, Charlton Heston and other classic voices to produce a quality product. Commentaries unifying more of the stories would make this more satisfying. But then, who among us doesn't want more stories read? D.W.K. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT 94]
