Our favorite line: "Hello, Beatrice," on the bus. Listen for it.
My 8-year-old son and I listen to audiobooks in the car. He frequently didn't want to stop listening to Hoot when we arrived at our destination or home. Breaking the book into parts built suspense and anticipation into the experience. As soon as we got in the car, I'd hear: "Hoot, please." And we'd pick up where we left off. By request, we've listened to it three times through. I don't mind because it's my favorite Carl Hiaasen kids' book, choosing from among Chomp, Scat, Flush, and Hoot, and I like all four books.
Highly recommend for all ages.
understands age 6
My son says when the sisters agree and when the new room is built. I love the ending, but don't want to reveal too much.
My 6-year-old son has all the Ramona books and has had me play the Ramona the Brave audiobook many times for him. Ramona describes how hard it is to be age 6, mostly because other people don't understand her, and I think he relates to how she feels. I like that Beverly Cleary's characters and home situations reflect what family life is really like.
This is one of the best values in kids' books: you get eight books. This was my 6-year-old son's first exposure to the Magic Treehouse series, and he loves listening to this collection.
