Absolutely. In fact this is a story my nearly 8 year old chooses to listen to many nights before falling asleep.
I haven't, but I would certainly be willing to. The performance for this book is excellent and makes it fantastic. This is a book I'd prefer to listen to than to read to myself.
Yes. We listened to it while traveling and it kept us entertained as the miles flew by.
My kids laughed out loud to Gooney Bird Greene's antics and stories. As a mom I was cheering as I heard her demonstrate telling and interesting story. What a fantastic way to teach creative writing!
A bonus to the audio version is being able to hear the songs that are talked about. While this may seem small it is something my children enjoyed very much.
One of the earliest scenes is the family getting stuck trying to go up a snowy hill. The discovery of the Sugar Shack is almost magical in the telling.
This book spoke to my heart. There is a desire to do just as the family did in this story, We read a lot of books and listen to a lot of books in our family. Miracles on Maple Hill is one that is a favorite for everyone.
The humor in the story was well presented by the reader.
As a parent I enjoyed the bits of the past my kids listened to and learned from. From my kids perspective they liked the pet skunk and the adventures that it was involved in the best.
This book had us laughing out loud.
We have chosen this to listen to several times and my girls have picked up the book to read themselves also. Proof that it's a great story.
