Reviews


(3 stars)

The stories are good, but the reading is irritating.


(4 stars)

Excellent reader. She really knows how to use natural inflection so that one can simply listen and understand comfortably instead of having to strain to pay attention because of a reader who does not know how to communicate with their voice. Everyone has preferences as far as what voices sound appealing to them. Personally I found her voice extremely pleasant. But either way the artistry of the reading was top notch.

The reading was pleasant. Timeline of events was good. Certain accounts of different people groups had heavily opinionated snarky remarks while other malicious groups were gently tip-toed around, painting them innocent while lightly muttering their evil deeds. It made the retelling sound biased towards certain groups of people and became exhaustive to listen to.

I enjoyed this history for children


(5 stars)

These vignettes are good for children, not delving too deeply in every facet of histirical thought-an adult would want more. I will explain further what I think is pertinent. This is an excellent place to start with kids.

Great reader on her other books; this one has a terrible technical problem. The cheap microphone is clipping the levels throughout- needs a re-do.

Listening to Hamilton Musical prompted me to know more about the American history. So much to know about the history of mankind.
