"Gulliver's Travels for Kids" (PDF ebook + MP3 audio)
Gulliver's Travels is one of the best known classics of all of English literature. Written by Jonathan Swift and published in 1726, the original book is a true classic, but it is frankly WAY too long and stuffy, filled with then-contemporary social satire on travel & the literary genres of the time. Can you say "Boring...!" But not today! Today we feature TWO great resources that make this classic "living book" truly come alive for your kids: 1) "Gulliver's Travels, rewritten for Young Readers" Great "easy reader" PDF ebook version of the story written by James Baldwin 2) "Gulliver's Travels" A delightfully fun audio dramatization of the story originally broadcast on radio in 1947. You'll hear many familiar "cartoon voices" portraying the 1/4" tall Lilliputians in the story. Fun for listeners of all ages!
