Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Tom Chapin

Children Ages 4-6 • 17 mins. • Unabridged • © 2007

What a treat to have the venerable Tom Chapin narrate this Okefenokee remake of the familiar “Over in the Meadow”! Meet snoozing marsh rabbits, soaring herons, trilling flame birds, and basking alligators, to mention just a few of the marsh’s inhabitants. Chapin is understated and unhurried in his narration. For dramatic effect, he elongates phrases—“Deeeeep in the swamp”—or slows—“where the water lilies thrive”—for consideration of the rich language. His pauses leave time for the swamp creature sound effects and for poring over Brian Lies’s illustrations. The production includes a track of Chapin singing the story, accompanying himself with various instruments, and a glossary of swamp inhabitants. A.R.
