  • Tif

    I liked the idea of the audio book, but I was disappointed to find the reader talked about the poetry, reciting only a few lines of each poem rather than reading the entire poem. My cat appreciated the bird songs, though.

    In just 40 minutes, this charming audiobook romps through both English literature and Cornell Lab of Ornitology’s famous catalog of bird songs.

    I loved the idea of this audio production - listening to birdsong recorded alongside the poems they inspired. In practice only a line or two of each poem was recited before moving on. In fact the whole recording is only about 40 minutes and so barely touches the subject or the range of birds that could be represented, even though time is give to US as well as European birds. However I did enjoy the birdsong very much and have now listened to it twice just for that simple pleasure.

  • Trish
