At a young age, I really loved Paul Bunyan, Pecos Bill and John Henry. Jonathan Winters was my parents' favorite comedian. I liked him too. To hear Winters voice again, almost brought tears to my eyes, so this book was great for me. I also loved Captain Kangaroo, Mr. Green Jeans, Tom Terrific, the bunny that never talked and the moose. Things have changed so much, that I will seriously have to say, I don't think my grandkids would like this. I think they would be bored. I also think it is gender specific. Little boys who have an illustrated book to follow along with this, might enjoy it. This would be most enjoyed by old men, who wanted to remember their childhood or big fans of Jonathan Winters, who does a fantastic job. If you are too young to know Winters, he was the Robin Williams of our time, if your too young for Robin Williams, well I can't help you there.

This was a cute but very short tale of Paul Bunyan, his oxen Babe and his crew of loggers who "cleared the forests of Dakota for president Teddy Roosevelt". It was a sweet tall tale. My grandchildren and I literally listened to this 30 minute vignette in line at the drive thru pharmacy.
It was quick, entertaining and thoroughly pg rated entertainment. Also sweetly nostagic as it was narrated by the late great Jonathan Winters.
