When you are young you hear poems without understanding half the vocabulary. It is quite funny and pleasant to listen again as an adult.
Narration - varies, and some (especially the rather exaggerated cockneys) were not to my taste.
"A treasure in poetry"
Beautifully read with great talent, these poems are presented with more than just the plainspoken word. Children’s poems here are preformed for the listener’s great pleasure with artful theatre in voices of faithfulness to the poem’s spirit.
Wonderful to play these poems to my granddaughter and to remember them from my own magical childhood.
Beautifully read with such different actors who obviously enjoy the process.
