  • Deep in the Swamp by Donna M. Bateman; Narrated by Tom Chapin from Live Oak Media

“I would recommend this title to any elementary or pre-school child and family. It’s a fun book packed in information about the Okefanokee swamp. It’s also beautifully crafted with a talented narrator and layers of sound to tickle the ear.”

  • Follow, Follow by Marilyn Singer; Narrated by Marilyn Singer & Joe Morton from Live Oak Media
  • H.O.R.S.E. by Christopher Myers; Narrated by Christopher Myers and Dion Graham from Live Oak Media
  • Josephine: The Dazzling Life of Josephine Baker by Patricia Hruby Powell; Narrated by Lizan Mitchell from Recorded Books
  • This Is Not My Hat by Jon Klassen; Narrated by John Keating from Weston Woods
  • Timeless Tales of Beatrix Potter by Beatrix Potter; Narrated by Katherine Kellgren from Tantor Media

“Listening to them one after another was a bit tedious for me. By disc three, I was ready to pull the plug on my player but I was so close to the end that I just finished. I think a short musical interlude between stories would have been lovely touch, but one story just followed another.”
