Kids World has dozens of new audio books on the shelf this week. Most of the titles are audio editions of new books but some are classics. For instance, you might enjoy hearing some of Roald Dahl’s most popular stories read by the author himself.
The Roald Dahl Audio Collection (2013, 1980) includes Fantastic Mr. Fox, The Enormous Crocodile, The Magic Finger and abridged versions of both Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and James and the Giant Peach. Very few recordings were made of Dahl, who died in 1990, reading his own work. These classic, fantastical stories are recommended for all ages and are especially amusing to enjoy with a child or the whole family. Dahl’s stories are always best read out loud; a British accent is even better and here it is the author himself! Listening doesn’t get much better.
The Roald Dahl Audio Collection includes 4 CDs and runs a total of 3.5 hours.
