Television actor Renato Rizzuti's first children's book is a throwback to early 20th century juvenile fiction, when the world knew rhymes from books, not rap, from Dr. Seuss, not Dr. Dre. The stories, told in verse, switch from teaching kids about why zebras have stripes to accepting racial equality amongst peers. Each tale's length is concise enough for a young one's short attention span.

soothing rhymes and a fun book for grandkids
it seemed so personal, so soothing- this was a "purring" vocal delivery, a pun, but actually an apt description- this voice was so expressive and I smiled throughout, a perfect delivery for this material.
the overall tone was so kid friendly, so welcoming for listening to with young grandchildren- and I even noticed a "message"; passages asking the listener to always say "please", and about tolerance of other people's differences- (Sally, May Ling, Tim....others)
I liked "Mortadella", because I had never heard of this type of food, I had to go look it up, so I learned something. I also liked the narrator's pronunciation and humor in "Bob the Bear". This was a very pleasing voice and delivery!
