Avid listener on my daily commute!
Children's books come in three kinds: The ones that make you inwardly groan when the kid hands it to you, thinking "Oh, no, not that one again" (10%), the ones you just read, not minding too much but not really enjoying the experience much either (85%), and then there's the other 5%. You know the ones I mean: those books you actually look FORWARD to reading to your kids because they're so funny, so full of hidden jokes for grownups. This is one of those, and even though the Audible version is just an audiobook and not an app, it SHOWS THE PICTURES AS THE NARRATOR READS THE STORY!! My 4 1/2-year-old grandson loves it. Recommended for kids 3-7...AND for adults who could use a laugh.
The Weston Woods productions for young children are wonderful! Please add more of these and similar productions by Scholastic, etc. (classic picture books with narration) to Audible catalog.
I love the voice I can listen time and again. the story is so cute and clever.And just love the artistic drawings.
