Historical & SciFi Book Lover, especially Georgette Heyer, Lois McMaster Bujold, Connie Willis (& New Who). Also books for the kids.
Got this a while ago for my youngest. I was disappointed that the rhymes are introduced by two people who chat about the rhymes and thought that would detract from the enjoyment of the audio. However, youngest completely disagrees with me. She likes it as there are some rhymes she does not know, some she forgot and some she knows well, but are said differently. And she positively likes the narrative parts (says it is like a chatty interview).
These ratings are hers. Of all the audible books I had purchased for her, this has remained a firm favourite.
There r many nursery rhyme books to choose from and I like this one because of the voices telling the rhymes. If your thinking about getting any audiobooks for your very young children make sure you listen to the sample. The voices make all the difference
as im not British myself, so these rhymes do not resonate with my cultural heritage. I guess it would sound familiar to Brits and performance is rather good
