    What disappointed you about Homeschooling Essentials: A Practical Guide to Getting Started?

    It seems like this book would be better suited to either the physical book or eReader book. The author is female and in describing homeschool teacher she only refers to them as "she," yet the narrator of the audiobook is male. The first part of that is offensive, the second part is just plain weird. Some great information and resources but I would prefer it in book form for easy referencing.

    The Grinch, whose heart is two sizes too small, hates Who-ville's holiday celebrations, and plans to steal all the presents to prevent Christmas from coming. To his amazement, Christmas comes anyway, and the Grinch discovers the true meaning of the holiday.

    If you could sum up How the Grinch Stole Christmas in three words, what would they be?

    Never too late.


    What other book might you compare How the Grinch Stole Christmas to and why?

    A Christmas Carol


    Any additional comments?

    Walter Matthau makes the story sound much more like a conversation rather than the performance of a poem.

    This is Jim Dale's incomparable telling of the beloved A Christmas Carol, a "little book," as Charles Dickens himself called it, which has been treasured by generations since December of 1843. Listeners of all ages will be enthralled as they meet for the first time, or are reunited with, that miser of all misers, Mr. Ebenezer Scrooge.

    Would you consider the audio edition of A Christmas Carol [Listening Library Version] to be better than the print version?

    Jim Dale has a hypnotic voice that puts you into the story from the very beginning, and leaves you wanting more at the end.
