(4.4 stars; 97 reviews)

Thornton Waldo Burgess (January 14, 1874 – June 5, 1965) was a conservationist and author of children's stories. He loved the beauty of nature and its living creatures so much that he wrote about them for 50 years. By the time he retired, he had written more than 170 books. Many of his outdoor observations in nature were used as plots for his stories. In his first book, "Old Mother West Wind," published in 1910, the reader meets many of the characters found in later books and stories. These characters include Peter Rabbit, Jimmy Skunk, Sammy Jay, Bobby Raccoon, Joe Otter, Grandfather Frog, Billy Mink, Jerry Muskrat, Spotty the Turtle and of course, Old Mother West Wind and her Merry Little Breezes. Note to parents of very small children: in Chapter 15, little Tommy Trout gets eaten by a pickerel. (Summary by Wikipedia and Laurie Anne Walden.)

My mom does not let me have earplugs in, so it is very hard to hear, even when the volume is as high as it can go!!!!!! Very poor audio voice, but it was okay. If it had better noise volume, it would be a great book! Scratch that!! My speaker has finnaly been charged. Thank goodness!!!!!!!! Smiling face with sunglasses!!!! By the way, my dad is millionaire!! I do not know if that is how to spell.

Audio quality is poor. Volume is cranked up and many words are still hard to hear.
