Listening With Little Ones by Lisa E.

Charlotte's Web by E.B. White (unabridged; read by author)
This beloved book by E. B. White, author of Stuart Little and The Trumpet of the Swan, is a classic of children's literature that is "just about perfect."  Some Pig. Humble. Radiant. These are the words in Charlotte's Web, high up in Zuckerman's barn. Charlotte's spiderweb tells of her feelings for a little pig named Wilbur, who simply wants a friend. They also express the love of a girl named Fern, who saved Wilbur's life when he was born the runt of his litter.

Charlie & the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl (unabridged; read by Eric Idle)
Willy Wonka's famous chocolate factory is opening at last!
But only five lucky children will be allowed inside. And the winners are: Augustus Gloop, an enormously fat boy whose hobby is eating; Veruca Salt, a spoiled-rotten brat whose parents are wrapped around her little finger; Violet Beauregarde, a dim-witted gum-chewer with the fastest jaws around; Mike Teavee, a toy pistol-toting gangster-in-training who is obsessed with television; and Charlie Bucket, Our Hero, a boy who is honest and kind, brave and true, and good and ready for the wildest time of his life!

The Roald Dahl Audio Collection by Roald Dahl (abridged; read by author)
Roald Dahl's hilarious and outrageous novels have made him one of the most popular children's authors of all time. Here, the author himself brings five of his wickedly funny stories to life:
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory:
Willy Wonka's famous chocolate factory is opening at last!
James and the Giant Peach:
A little magic can take you a long way.
Fantastic Mr. Fox:
Nobody outfoxes Fantastic Mr. Fox!
The Enormous Crocodile:
Watch out, kids!
The Magic Finger:
What happens when the hunter becomes the hunted?

Tucker is a streetwise city mouse. He thought he'd seen it all. But he's never met a cricket before, which really isn't surprising, because, along with his friend Harry Cat, Tucker lives in the very heart of New York City--the Times Square subway station. Chester Cricket never intended to leave his Connecticut meadow. He'd be there still if he hadn't followed the entrancing aroma of liverwurst right into someone's picnic basket. Now, like any tourist in the city, he wants to look around. And he could not have found two better guides--and friends--than Tucker and Harry. The trio have many adventures--from taking in the sights and sounds of Broadway to escaping a smoky fire.

Peter Pan by J. M. Barrie (unabridged; read by Roe Kendall)
As a baby, Peter Pan fell out of his carriage and was taken by fairies to Neverland. There he can fly and is the champion of the Lost Boys and a friend to the fairy Tinker Bell. Revisiting England, Peter becomes involved with Wendy Darling and her younger brothers, all of whom accompany Peter to Neverland. Peter, the Lost Boys, and the children have many adventures and vanquish the pirate Captain Hook. The Darling children eventually return home, taking the Lost Boys with them and leaving Peter Pan to his perpetual boyhood.
