Mr. Green reads stories

MR. GREEN has been reading stories to young’ns from the time he was still one himself.

(Come to think of it, “still” is an appropriate word in that sentence.)

As many families can testify, the hours spent in evening read-alouds are among the very dearest memories our children have.

Several years ago he recorded a bunch of them in a project he called “You Need a Story.” (Interesting story about that title, but we’ll talk about that another day.) It was a very eclectic mix of good stuff from Kipling to Twain to Shakespeare-retold. Some of them were less known, some were really obscure, and some were stories of his own thrown in. Just to keep him on his toes.

He assures me the recordings are quite amateurish. I think they are quite wonderful.

(And he requires me to point out that his real claim to fame is his astonishing imitations of barking dogs.)

I’m going to post links to them here for you to listen to, or download for later — just enjoy however you want — one per week until he runs out of them. (The stories, not the astonishing dogs.)

I hope he never runs out.

Not sure yet what order they will be in, but you can look for such classics as

  • “The Winter’s Tale,” from Tales from Shakespeare, by Charles and Mary Lamb
  • “Henny Penny,” by Joseph Jacobs
  • “Rip Van Winkle,” by Washington Irving
  • “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” from Tales from Shakespeare, by Charles and Mary Lamb
  • “Jack and the Beanstalk,” by Joseph Jacobs …
