Haven't read the print version
The way it holds the attention of my 5 year old grandson and how he plays out stories like it after listening.
The reader made it easy for the kids to tell characters apart and to follow the action in the stories. She was interested, so even the 3 year old was listening for longer than usual.
Mary Pope Osborne is a fantastic narrator. I really appreciate that!
Also, I'm usually irritated with fiction books that so obviously want to teach kids things - but these really strike a balance. My boys are entranced by the plot lines, and they are having fun learning things ("Mommy, did you KNOW that the moon is HOT during the day!...etc)
great childhood adventure
My six year old son has really enjoyed listening to these stories on the way to school. They have everything he loves-- dinosaurs, pirates, ninjas, space. He really relates to the main male character. He can't wait until I download the next set.
Great bedtime read. Our favorite children's book so far.
My son kept asking to look at the picture, so he could imagine to story. He had a smile on his face the whole time we listen, and he eagerly gets ready for bed to hear the next story!
Yes, but it was fun to see the anticipation of hearing the next chapter.
This series is magical and wonderful and narrated beautifully by Mary Pope Osborne! My kids cannot wait to hear more and ALWAYS ask to listen anytime we are in the car. Even I cannot wait to hear what happens next in the stories! It's so exciting when my 5 year-old yells "Run Jack, run Annie!". All of my children were so excited when "M" was finally revealed! What an amazing series and perfect narration! We would recommend this to anyone!
Great adventures that take you through time and places.
Every story takes you to a different place and on an new adventure.
Mary Pope Osborne brings the story alive with the excitement of each character.
Yep, kids already have!!
Love the author reading the stories and the kids love the adventures!!
My granddaughter and I listen to this every night as she falls asleep. It settles her down and she is asleep in minutes.
Trapped in the pyramid.
