Yes, this series of books is for children and that is exactly what I need! I home school my children and this series is used in my curriculum package so I have the books. My youngest son is dyslexic, though. That means that I read most of his books to him to save time since his reading speed is so slow. Audible has been a lifesaver for me. Having this series of books on Audible will save me huge amounts of time this year. I wasn't expecting to find these; I checked just for form and here they are. In terms of content, Hakim's books are an excellent source for young listeners. She writes in an engaging style that captivated even my oldest who is decidedly uninterested in all things history.
Thank you, Audible, for making these available.
I am writing this review after listening to about 5 minutes of the book. The reader is terrible. The voice she has given Peabody is awful and she calls her "Peabuddy". There is no flow to the words; she reads it in short declaritive bursts. As a veteran reader of JD Robb and Nora Roberts, this style doesn't fit. I know I'll love the story if I can stand to listen to it. Find a new reader for this series. Please.
