Fun audiobook for kindergarten and 1st grade

by m.scheuer (WorldCat user published 2009-06-03) Excellent Permalink

Try James on the Giant Peach as an audiobook - great fun!!  James escapes his wicked aunts with the help of magic crystals and enters the magical world with the insects. This audiobook is so much fun. Jeremy Irons doesn't just read the story - he performs it, bringing laughter and hillarity throughout....
