THE ENCHANTED HOUR The Miraculous Power of Reading Aloud in the Age of Distraction

by | Read by Meghan Cox Gurdon

Personal Growth • 7.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

This wonderful audiobook is a fully enjoyable listen. Meghan Cox Gurdon is the WALL STREET JOURNAL's reviewer of children's books, so it isn't surprising that she brings great insight and passion to this work. What may be surprising, however, is just how good a narrator she is. She sprinkles her delivery with appropriate accents and enthusiasm. Furthermore, her pacing is excellent, and her ability to maintain listener attention is impressive. Half the fun of listening is recalling the children's books from our own pasts and recollecting the joy of reading to little ones. Add in Gurdon's research on the benefits of reading aloud, along with a dollop of screen weariness, and you have an important and engaging audiobook.
