Mary Poppins Audiobook Free
Here is the timeless story of Mary Poppins, the world’s favorite nanny, and her magical adventures with the Banks family.
Mary Poppins Audiobook is like no other nanny the Banks children have ever seen. It all starts when their new nanny is blown by the east wind onto the doorstep of the Banks house, carrying a parrot-headed umbrella and a magic carpetbag. She becomes a most unusual nanny to Jane, Michael, and the twins.
Who else but Mary Poppins can slide up banisters, pull an entire armchair out of an empty carpetbag, and make a dose of medicine taste like delicious lime-juice cordial? A day with Mary Poppins is a day of magic and make-believe come to life!
The audiobooks were adapted by Walt Disney into a musical film titled Mary Poppins (1964), starring Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke. The film Saving Mr. Banks (2013) depicted the making of the 1964 film. Disney’s sequel to the 1964 film, Mary Poppins Returns, was released in 2018, and stars Emily Blunt as Poppins.
It received a total of 13 Academy Awards nominations, including Best Picture – a record for any other film released by Walt Disney Studios – and won five: Best Actress for Andrews, Best Film Editing, Best Original Music Score, Best Visual Effects, and Best Original Song for “Chim Chim Cher-ee”.
In 2013, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”. Mary Poppins is considered Walt Disney’s crowning live-action achievement and is the only one of his films which earned a Best Picture nomination during his lifetime.
Originally written in 1934. As a child, I had never read the book Mary Poppins. I knew about the Disney musical based on this book, but after watching the movie Saving Mr. Banks, I had to buy and read this book. It was great! I love Mary Poppins and the many adventures that she has with Michael, Jane, and the twins.
The voice of the narrator is detailed yet cheeky and reads a lot like the character of Mary Poppins herself. The complexity of the family issues (hint: there are more than two kids) is thought-provoking and entertaining. This audiobook is a great curl-up afternoon silent read, or works well as a read-aloud (probably because PL Travers had dramatic experience as well).
I will not spoil anything for anyone. Must read and must buy for young and old alike! You will not be disappointed.
