This is a classic story that was done very well. The music wasn't cut short as in other recordings I've listened to, and Jim Dale can do no wrong.

Grandfather is an old bassoon

This concert is one of the best ways to introduce a child to the assorted parts of an orchestra. I first heard this concert in the early years of 1940. Later, I purchased the Leonard Bernstein version for my children to hear. Now, I bought this version from Audible to share with my granddaughter.
She was delighted to know it was read by Jim Dale, the "voice of Harry Potter" and she sat beside me as we shared a pair of earphones to listen to it together. When it was over, she borrowed my ipod so she could hear it again. Later in the day I overheard her walking around, humming Peter's theme.
