While on a family road trip some years ago we stopped at a bookstore. I needed some books for the kids to read. I found one called Mr. Mosquito Put on His Tuxedo.
It became a favorite. I read it to my girls night after night. In fact I started to know it by heart.
Soon I began reciting it for them, then for a family reunion, for church and in a Toastmasters Club (group for getting better at public speaking).
I spoke with the author and she was fine with me reciting it on youtube. But after reflection, I wanted to do something more. With her consent, we made a children’s audiobook.
It’s been a fun experience for me, and I still love the story, they rhymes, and as you’ll see – I love telling it with various voices and British accents.
