Reviews

Lovely and memorable

(5 stars)

Staring at age 5, my kids have enjoyed listening to these delightful tales. They run various lengths so we'd select which to hear based on how long our drive was. Each family member has a favorite.

cadence & pronunciation is very off

(1 stars)

these stories have repetition and rhymn built in, it's part of their charm, they are best enjoyed orally. But the read takes akward pauses in the oddest places and stumbles over words.

Needs a better reader

(3 stars)

I love these stories, my mother read them to me as a child & they are charming. This reader does not do them justice.
