Sunday Link Du Jour: Musical Dr. Seuss
Wary of books that come with CDs? You’re not alone. NPR’s Daniel Pinkwater feels the same way, yet there is a recent exception: “Jim Copp, Will You Tell Me A Story?“. Mr. Copp skipped the whole bound paper thing and committed his children’s stories straight to vinyl in the 50s, 60s, and 70s. Now they’ve been collected in a new book, with illustrations and an accompanying CD of the original audio tales.
Being a youngster in the children’s lit world, I was unaware of Mr. Copp before listening to this piece, but the excerpts that they play had me running to add a copy to the school libraries where I work. Click the play button below to learn more about a man once calledÂ “a musical Dr. Seuss”.
