August 28 — Spiderweb for Two!

August 28th, 2013 — 10:09am

Hey Melendy fans,

I just recorded the second chapter of Spiderweb for Two. It’s the one where Cuffy tells a wonderful story about her childhood on a farm in Wisconsin and her adventures with a boy named Francis.

Both chapters are already up on my Archive page. To make it easy for you, here are links:

Spiderweb for Two 01 The Shadow’s Peak
Spiderweb for Two 02 A Loving Heart

(I’ll put links to the whole book on my “Kayray Reads to You” page when the book is finished)

P.S. The book that is mentioned, Little Lord Fauntleroy, is a real book by Frances Hodgson Burnett. I haven’t recorded it yet, but there are a couple of versions on librivox:

Burnett, Frances Hodgson. “Little Lord Fauntleroy” (group version; I read six chapters.)
Burnett, Frances Hodgson. “Little Lord Fauntleroy (version 2)” (solo version)

August 17 – Water in the Park

August 17th, 2013 — 7:05am

Back in May I went to the bookstore to buy a gift for my soon-to-be-born niece. While I was there I spotted a charming picture book, Water in the Park, about a park in the big city and all the water-related things that happen there on a hot summer day. It was so well-written and had such lovely illustrations, the kind that have lots of interesting details to examine, that I just had to buy it for someone!

I have a couple of little cousins who live in NYC, and I thought the book would be perfect for them. I planned to send it to the older one for her 4th birthday in July, but time got away from me, what with all the crazy things happening in my life…

I finally mailed it off a couple of days ago, but first I recorded it so that little Ginny and Jo can listen to me read it to them at any time :)

It’s probably not super-interesting without the pictures to look at while you listen, but maybe you have a copy of your own, or can buy it or get it from the library, so here’s my recording:

Water in the Park: A Book About Water and the Times of the Day

Enjoy :)
