Striver's Row II

The kids loved the story of the Collyer Brothers. I decided to try out the gripping Striver's Row narration by Thomas Penny in combination with matching scanned pages. I chose a scene where Malcolm X is being chased by thieves intent on taking his drug proceeds (this is Malcolm before his religious redemptive conversion). He finally eludes them by making his way into the labyrinth of the Collyer house.
Here's a portion of the selection used as a quicktime movie
BTW the kids took it all in with rapt attention and many remarked how real the scene seemed to them. Too bad audio books are not on the "coaches' play list." I guess Lucy's waiting to license her own.
