this version/summary by james baldwin is really good. i found the audiobook on itunes at USF* Lit2Go. the reader is clear and engaging. and of course baldwin's summary of these stories are well worth the time. listed as a 6th grade level and i can easily imagine that this age group would totally enjoy this audio. ohyeah.
