“Over the years, narrating Magic Tree House has become more and more fun. In the beginning, I was kind of nervous and I wanted to make sure I did all the voices right. I practiced a lot ahead of time, and now, after what, 55 books, it’s just a way of life. I know the characters so well and I know the stories and I enjoy so much making them come alive for myself again.”

What We’re Listening To

Summer is basically made for relaxing and reading, but just when you were getting used to long summer evenings and sunny days at the beach, the sun begins to set earlier and days begin to go quicker.
