It's hard to go wrong with Dr. Seuss, especially a classic like this read by Kelsey Grammar. Very enjoyable.
This is a clever story about a clever little mouse that my kids (3 and 5) love. I don't think the 3-yeard old would get it (without having seen the book) if she hadn't seen an animated version prior, but she'd probably still stay tuned the entire time because of the performance. The narrator does different voices for all of the animals- super fun!
I recommend this book.
"Little Hoot" is a great little bedtime story about an owl who wants to go to bed when his other animal friends do, but instead his parents make him stay up late and play because that's what good little owls do.
While this recording doesn't have all the bells and whistles that some performances does, Abby Sher has a really fun voice that lends itself well to kid characters.
We also love Sher's recording of "Little Pea" about the pea who has to eat all his candy dinner before he can have his spinach dessert (in fact if you have to choose one, my kids prefer this one but I think that's just because they like candy so much themselves), and I hope audible does some more of this tongue in cheek series by Rosenthal.
This telling of the Little Engine story has fascinated my son who has autism and loves trains many times. The narrator has a fun voice and makes the story endearing and exciting! I would love to find more audibles like this one!
