Hi!
I would like to contribute A Child's Dream of the Zoo by William Manning http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/61939
It is too short for a solo project and I was directed here, but I also see that this project doesn't want poems. It truly is a poem for children and I don't think it belongs in the short poetry project. Any suggestions?

Now everyone, big or little, has a story.

Hi AnnaLisa,

I'll make an exception just this once, since it is a longer poem, and appears to have been published by itself, and not in a book of poems. :-)

Hi Helen,

Thank you!

Jemima Puddleduck and Miss Moppet are both PL OK!

The Tale of the Three Bears has a few issue. The volume on this file is ready 97 DB, which is a bit high. However, it appears to be that high only in the second half of the file. At around the 4:30 mark the volume jumps up. There are several spots (I think when you reading the Papa Bear :-)) Where it is so loud that what we call "clipping" is happening. That is when the wave forms hit the top and bottom and cause distortion in the audio. There are several places this happens, but I think they are all understandable except between 5:57 and 6:00. I would recommend re-recording that short section and pasting it in the file.

If you could do that, and reupload using the same file name, that would be great! Let me know if you need any help.
