This recording is an audio treat! Paul Fleischman’s books of poetry for two voices, Joyful Noise and I am Phoenix, have been acclaimed (Newbery Medal for Joyful Noise) and are favorite reading material. But now, the listener will never do anything else but listen to the poems. Melissa Hughes, Scott Snively, and supporting young voices transport the listener to Fleischman’s world of insects and birds. Their voices are crisp and eager. The play between multiple voices brings natural moments into memorable focus whether it be the flash of the fireflies’ lights, the mimicry of the mockingbird, the conflicting viewpoints of life in a bee hive, or the flurry of early morning finches. Listen and enjoy, and listen and enjoy again! A.R. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 01]
