I listen to most of the stories that come from Libravox for the narrator over the storyline itself, as I've been told & agree with that it's the way the story is read which essentially makes a good tale into a great one. Miss Shallenburg has such a unique and rolling flow within her voice that creates any tale she tells & turns it into something so special that only her & Chip are the only ones capable in sending me into the land of Nod. (I'm a chronic insomniac & they work better than the strongest benzodiazepeams i take eg. Alodorm, Valium, even Serapax) Ive been told that my reading voice is similar to theirs. the idea of volunteering for Libravox will come soon. I'm giving this one 4.5 because the story is so brief. Kudos to you Miss Shallenburg for the influence you have that no counseling or sleeping tablets can cure. And its all due to your lovely flowing voice.

How very cute.

Just click the link to Project Gutenberg and it opens up to the html of this booklet. Delightful illustrations are there to look at while Kara reads the little verse.
