    Review by: Booklist Magazine - January 1, 1999
    "These five read-along titles offer clear and expressive narrations. The youthful voice of the reader in The Gardener, and the inflection of the narrator's voice in Ben's Trumpet are especially noteworthy. The latter title is also notable for including an original jazz score as an appropriate accompaniment. The original titles are well known and range from Caldecott Honor books to fiction and nonfiction biographical fare. The books are attractively illustrated, and the paperbacks have sturdy glued binding. A brief guide provides background on the author and suggested activities. This quintet of recordings offers a diverse assortment of stories as reading material for beginning readers and other reading, language arts, and literacy activities."
    Review by: AudioFile Magazine - November 15, 1998
    "Heat up a mug of hot chocolate and throw a log on the fire before listening to this true story from the famous Blizzard of '88. As 12-year-old Milton Daub braves the 1888 snowstorm in the Bronx, the sound of icy howling winds and cracking trees enhances the experience. The narrator maintains the tension throughout with a tight, slightly hushed reading that seems to slip free from the simplicity of the accompanying easy-reader text. The pacing, slow and resolute as Milton moves determinedly on his mission, rushes forward when the situation becomes dire. The excitement, danger and heroism of Milton's day of rescue and delivery in the storm will cause young listeners to wish for their own blizzards."
