I'm a mom. I have drama in my life. I don't want books with the F-bomb, nor graphic violence. I read for fun and to bring my family together. I read for reducing stress levels. We have never had a television in our home and our children are now mid twenties to 19. We listen together and look for belly-wrenching laughter. So what is it like to live without a TV? Awesomely educational and inspirational. Each new book is a marvel.

  • "HAHA! Great narration..."

    Overall

    This book would not have been so enjoyable to listen, if the narrator had been different. Too funny! I am just drawn in and can see Tom and characters in my mind, clear as day. I loved the stumble when it came to winning the bible. David and who?

    There are a few snipettes of the audio that are cut out. Someone wasn't watching what they were doing. But these can be skipped over. It would be nice to see an updated audio prepared. If this were a paper book, then the missing pages would be cause for return to the seller. Because this book is in the public domain, the text is easily found.

    If you want a funny story, the kind that are dismissed because "boys will be boys" then you should really enjoy this audiobook because of this specific narration.

    This is the story of a boy's adventures growing up in a small town on the banks of the Mississippi river over 100 years ago. The cheerful, adventurous hero plays truant to form a pirate band and, together with his best friend, Huckleberry Finn, finds fun, excitement, and buried treasure along the shores of the great river.

  • "Mixed thoughts, enjoyable story"

    Overall

    I had some mixed feelings about the narration. At first it really bothered me. As I listened more, I really was dragged into the story. Since the primary part of the audio is the storyline I tried to focus on what the characters were actually doing. As the story progressed I came to really enjoy the narration. I think the problem with this narration is it follows Lynn Redgrave. It is really hard to change from a woman to a man narrator when the characters stay the same.

    I am looking forward to InkDeath. It should help us wrap up a great story/series.

    Although a year has passed, not a day goes by without Meggie thinking of Inkheart, the book whose characters became real. But for Dustfinger, the fire-eater brought into being from words, the need to return to the tale has become desperate. When he finds a crooked storyteller with the ability to read him back, Dustfinger leaves behind his young apprentice Farid and plunges into the medieval world of his past.

  • "I thought this book was funny"

    Overall

    Amazing how adults can screw up kids lives. Anyway, while I don't believe these characters are 7th graders, I can believe they are teens. And they have certainly been dealt a bad hand in this game. Making the best of things is their way of life and I laughed considerably while they did this. I saw the plot coming long before it happened. If you like this book then you should get the Ariadne Meyers narrated books by
    Sarah Mlynowski. Start with Bras and Broomsticks. Not only will you laugh about being a teen again, but Ariadne Meyers was great.

    I enjoyed Francois Battiste in this book. I'll look for books he has narrated in the future.

  • Magic Tree House Collection: Books 1-8

    "Fun!"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    What did you love best about Magic Tree House Collection: Books 1-8?

    My 7 year old daughter loved to listen to these while playing lego's or dolls. Much better than having the tv going in the background. She loves the books and has read them and is now enjoying listening to them over and over.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Magic Tree House Collection: Books 1-8?

    The trip to prehistoric times was exciting and entertaining.


    Any additional comments?

    While reading is incredibly important listening and using the imagination is also. This gives the child a different way to use their imagination. Audible books are a great way to encourage development. I also appreciate that Mary Pope Osborne does not use slang. I have found other audible's hard to listen to as they are written in slang or as if a 5-6 year old were speaking. Hearing poor English sets up a pattern for poor speaking in a young mind. I love that this author and this audible did not make me cringe.

    Story
    If you could sum up Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer in three words, what would they be?

    Family Fun


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer?

    When Theodore struggled with fighting in school. He is not a fighter but struggled with the concept of sticking up for right vs wrong. A very real everyday struggle for children and adults.


    Which character – as performed by Richard Thomas – was your favorite?

    The uncle


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. Its a book that my daugther and I listen to together.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a book that can be listened to as a family. The tv is off or in the car the radio is off. Conversation regarding characters and situations in the book follow.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Goosebumps HorrorLand, Book 1 the most enjoyable?

    My daughter got really caught up in the story. She was enthralled, a littled scared, a little grosed out and completely entertained.


    What other book might you compare Goosebumps HorrorLand, Book 1 to and why?

    Creep of the deep. But this one had a little extra something in it.


    What about Alissa Hunnicutt’s performance did you like?

    Fun.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The dummy was pretty frightening in its own way. At one point my daughter commented that she thought the book was too scary yet refused to stop listening. No nightmares as she stuck it out and the adventure was all explained. My daughter was engrosed in the story from the beginning. I think she is a bit young for the series but she was checking them out in the school library hiding and reading them so I allowed it. However if the child is easily frightened or does not understand that the stories are not real - this particular story might be one to wait on.


    Any additional comments?

    I appreciate that she can use her imagination and listen while playing or driving. Saves the parent from the annoying blabbering yellow character and pink friend on tv and creates dialogue. My husband and I enjoyed hearing them also. From an adult perspective they are a scream!

    Have you listened to any of Nathaniel Parker’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. The other Artis Fowl books.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. Its nice to look forward to hearing it.


    Any additional comments?

    Good fun for the family.

  • "Really valuable information here"

    8 of 8 helpful votes

    Initially, I was disappointed that Kimberley Reynolds lacks the dynamic and conversational style that is so desirable in an Audible course.

    But, wait. The information packed into this set of lectures is so interesting and so valuable that I soon forgave, and actually came to like, the rather stiff delivery. This is a serious presentation of the history not only of children's literature but of the changing concept of childhood itself.

    Most of us choose books for our children based on what we have enjoyed ourselves, what we think will interest the kids and advance their reading skills, and on the pure entertainment value of the material. This course will likely not change that, but having a more scholarly foundation about the psychological and developmental benefits of reading for young people at different stages will offer a great advantage for parents, grandparents, teachers, librarians and others who help children choose appropriate books.

    The literature covered includes analysis of books for all ages of childhood, from infancy to young adult. When the subjects got a bit too esoteric for me (mostly in the YA lectures), I found the PDF study guide to be very helpful in deciding which lectures would interest me most. Although the analyses sometimes offer more detail than many of us ultimately want, I believe there is much general and particular information here that will be of interest and value to all parents and literature lovers.

    Another benefit is the timely nature of the course. Harry Potter is discussed, as are "The Hunger Games" series. Professor Reynolds touches on new technologies like digital and interactive books and the endless merchandise tie-ins which are peddled to children on the media. There's a bit near the end about the effects of tough economic times on youngsters. This is up-to-date stuff!

    In the 21st century, many of the best-known and most influential stories have been conceived for juveniles. In "Children’s Literature", Professor Kimberley Reynolds of Newcastle University delves into the phenomenon and “golden ages” of this remarkably diverse literary genre. Throughout the lectures, Reynolds addresses questions of why children’s literature is so popular and how these extraordinary works have both responded to and helped to shape childhood.
