While babysitting my young nephews I realized I needed a hand keeping them close while cooking, but with no one available for backup, Audible jumped to mind. I purchased, downloaded and played in two minutes this book that I played over and over and finished dinner with everybody safe accounted for and happy!
Never too late.
A Christmas Carol
Walter Matthau makes the story sound much more like a conversation rather than the performance of a poem.
Yes and my daughter and I do play it over & over.. She is 5 and just loves it.
Favorite Christmas Story
A Christmas Carol because it is about a grumpy old grouch finally getting the Christmas Spirit.
Who better to play an old Grinch than a Grumpy Old Man?!
Definitely, especially in front of the Christmas tree with some hot cocoa and cookies.
The reader is almost as good as the original with Boris Karloff.
Cindy Lou Who
The character in his voice.
Old Favourite with wonderful message.
Jana P. Grammy of 7 boys, Mom of 3 daughters, 1 son Lover of books & better eye sight.
The grinch has now become a holiday classic loved by all ages. the narration is great, and the children all gather round......
..... Christmas must watch cartoon & movie.
Great for kids to listen to in the car or bedtime or anytime.
I would not recommend that ANYONE purchase this audiobook. It kills me to say this about a kiddie-classic, but this is a terrible audiobook. I downloaded it for my daughters, and the quality and narrative performance are so terrible that my daughters won't even listen to it--and they LOVE audiobooks.I expected a children's classic like this one to have incredibly high sound quality and great production in terms of character voices and clarity, but that is VERY far from the case. Instead, the sound quality is extremely poor, the narrator is terrible, and much of character-voice-attempts just sound like garbled noise. I've heard better production, sound quality, and performances in amateur pod-casts.
It was too poor quality to follow
Voices and sound quality
Give me a refund. In fact, give everyone who purchased this book a refund; and then hire a different production staff to make a good, nay, GREAT version of the book, and scrap the current one...cuz it's terrible!
Nice sound but no pictures on the story. Son wasn't interested in this classic because there was no sync of pictures to voice. Whats the point if its just audio.
Not sure. Won't be anything if all of your children's books are like this.
