Listening to Poetry

Mohamed Imranullah S. of Madurai sends us the following message: "Hi! This is just to say many, many thanks to you. I casually purchased your audiobook 'Listening to Poetry- Book 1' a couple of months ago and it worked wonders with my six year old son A. Aadhi Imran. He has started to recite almost all the poems in the book. It is on youtube under the title 'Poetry recitation by six year old Aadhi.' Just take a look at it!"

Listening to Poetry Volumes 1 and 2 are available on the Karadi Tales website!
