Three timeless tales will come to life with this audio recording and will help children with dyslexia engage with words and stories.
Catherine Zeta-Jones narrates The Runaway Bunny

The Runaway Bunny, that classic story of free thinking and creativity first published in 1942 by Brooklyn-born Margaret Wise Brown, will be given a new voice this fall when GPR Records releases a version narrated by award-winning actress Catherine Zeta-Jones.

The recording is part of a piano trio that also features international opera star Mark Stone singing Goodnight Moon and a special guest star narrating Poulenc’s Babar, the Elephant.

A portion of proceeds from the CD, which is set to release Nov. 15 ($19.99; gprrecords.com), will benefit the Windward School in White Plains, which is dedicated to helping dyslexic children.

“I know the importance of music and reading,” Zeta-Jones says, “and my hope is that this CD will touch and capture the imagination of a new generation.”
