Review:
This CD is a "movie for the ears"! Odds Bodkin is a one-man producer, director, musician, and storyteller of the magical "Little Proto and the Volcano's Fire." He cleverly incorporates scientific facts about dinosaurs in this suspenseful adventure about a volcanic eruption that threatens to destroy the dinos' home. The suspense is heightened when Ankles, a tiny ankylosaurus, suddenly feels useless and he becomes lost -- both in his world of sadness and literally in the physical world. He eventually becomes an admired hero, in spite of his small size. The CD will likely have special appeal to boys and girls who are interested in dinosaurs. (Maybe that includes all young learners!) Parents are advised to arrange an uninterrupted block of listening time for this exciting tale.
