My 2.5 year old son loves this story when I read from the picture book and he's decent at listening to audiobooks, especially if he already knows the story. However, this audiobook is read so slowly so an early reader could follow along if they had the book in front of them. The narrator even prompts the child to turn the page and describes what is on the page. It works for my 5 year old who is an early reader, but it loses the story's magic and rhyme when it has all the page turning breaks and is read so slowly. I wish the description of the book had something about what to expect with this audiobook. I should have listened to a sample before I purchased the 6.5 minute book for over $7. The fact that my 5 year old likes to follow along with the words and book we have makes it not a total loss for me.
