"Sure to please young and old....Jane Yolen's narration is just right." (AudioFile)
The stories were mostly good and my 3yo son enjoyed them. 14 rats is a strange story - there may be something missing, but it starts off with one scenario and then abruptly shifts to a different setting. The quality of the readings varies - 14 rats sounds like it was recorded in the 30s. Curious George is done well enough, as is the Dinosaur story, but the Red Hen also sounds quite old fashioned.
For the money, you can't go wrong with this one. The narration, background music, etc., are all excellent. Other Curious George titles are pricey, which is why I chose this one. My 3-year-old likes the other stories as well.
These 4 stories are classic stories. My kiddos love to listen to audible stories in the car and the curious george story is often requested. It's also a great bargain. It has been awhile since I purchased, but I think one curious george story is approximately the same price as the entire group here.
