I am glad I decided to come back and revisit some of my earlier purchases. I was pleasantly surprised when I played this story on my Android phone, in the Audible ap, to find illustrations that accompany the story!
I focus on fiction, sci-fi, fantasy, science, history, politics and read a lot. I try to review everything I read.
The synchronized illustrations worked great on the iPhone and iPad. This is a very nice little bedtime story with very nice illustrations and very simple bedtime focused story. I personally like a bedtime story with a bit more of a message, nevertheless this is an excellent book for a sleepy child, particularly one who has been having bad dreams, or is scared of the monster in the closet. The narration is wonderful as are the illustrations that are displayed as the story plays. NOTE this is only 5 minutes and 69 cents so don’t use a book credit!
I purchased this specifically to try out the audible books with syncronized images. There are no images (besides the cover of the book). Not sure why. At first I believed it to be a Kindle issue so I also downloaded to an iphone and an ipad. Neither one of those worked either. I am disappointed by the lack of images. It makes me wary of buying any more that claim synchronized images. The reading itself and story, of course, are just fine.
I don't know if it's my kindle but the images did not come up when listening to this book. One review said theirs worked and another person said theirs did not so I'm another one that's disappointed.
Other than that, the music was nice and the reader was great! I've always enjoyed this book and the pictures that go with it so it was quite disappointing to not have the pictures. Luckily it was cheap, but I didn't receive what was advertised.
The narrator's voice was annoying and the content was too simple and spaced out.. Not enough content for kids to learn from and the pictures were too bland
Nope! Not at all
Almost anybody else would have done better
The only thing that redeemed this title was the fact that it rhymed
The music and narration are very good. Really loved having the pages of the story as a slide show to accompany the narration.
Short, sweet story, perfect for bedtime. My 4 year old loves it.
Pleasant voice, suitable music- not overpowering.
The only drawback to this purchase was the quality of the slideshow. It appears as if the pages of the book were scanned with dust and fibers dirtying it up. However, I have the actual book and again- it's a purchase for my 4 year old. For 0.69 who cares!
yes i have told all my friend about it all ready. because the children can listen to it when you are busy with household things
the little old lady
