The Good [Kids'] Stuff: What we're listening to, part 2

To improve our very noisy car travel, we've had the audiobook of The collected stories of Winnie-the-Pooh playing in our car the last two weeks. This cd set is read by Stephen Fry and Judy Dench, along with a full cast of characters. I'm not a huge fan of the Disney Winnie-the-Pooh; just a bit too cheesy/annoyingly bouncy for me. But, Shane and I were talking last night about our favorite parts from these stories! The stories are read as they were originally written, and include the richness and depth to the characters and they are sweet. Peter loves each one! I cried on the last story when sweet Christopher Robin had to explain to Pooh that he had to grow up.

Anyway, we love these and they would be a perfect thing to put in the cd player on a road trip.

ps. I just discovered Gwenyth Paltrow's sooooo fabulous website, I think I'm going to discontinue reading all other blogs and just read this one. Ah, she is the best.

We have the same one right now from the library, but I have to say that Noelle is ADDICTED to the Peter Rabbit one. It has 5 CDs of Beatrix Potter stories and Noelle has been asking to hear Mrs. Tiggywinkle all day. Jim Weiss narrates and it is awesome. I guess I will have to push WInnie the Pooh a bit more.
