The stories are engaging and the action is quite light hearted.
The dinosaur story is pretty awesome.
I have not read the print version. I cannot answer the question.
Magic Faraway Tree by Enid Blyton.
No. It was enjoyable to listen to, as long as one was in touch with one's inner child.
Good for reading to children as the chapters are short and easy to understand.
I bought this to my daugthers, they enjoy the histories, and is easy to read.
If you have children, these are a great way to pass the time on a long drive.
The stories are very captivating and each set of downloads includes around 8 books from the series. Each story builds on the next.
We enjoy Mummies in the morning most. Book 3 I believe.
No. Better to break them up.
Overall I would highly suggest them. The only critique I have is that they are all read by the Author. She does a good job, but just doesn't put enough "life" into each of the characters.
Haven't read the print version
The way it holds the attention of my 5 year old grandson and how he plays out stories like it after listening.
The reader made it easy for the kids to tell characters apart and to follow the action in the stories. She was interested, so even the 3 year old was listening for longer than usual.
Mary Pope Osborne is a fantastic narrator. I really appreciate that!
Also, I'm usually irritated with fiction books that so obviously want to teach kids things - but these really strike a balance. My boys are entranced by the plot lines, and they are having fun learning things ("Mommy, did you KNOW that the moon is HOT during the day!...etc)
great childhood adventure
My six year old son has really enjoyed listening to these stories on the way to school. They have everything he loves-- dinosaurs, pirates, ninjas, space. He really relates to the main male character. He can't wait until I download the next set.
I thought the book would appear on my laptop and my 5 year old son would be able to see pictures as the story was read to him. Doesn't happen. It isn't even appearing on my desktop, so far. It is on my Kindle after 5 days but it's just read out loud, no pictures. This means nothing to him. We are both disappointed. I wasted a credit. What kid wants a book read to him/her with no pictures???? Dumb idea, right? I think I'll cancel my membership. I love to read and don't need books read to me or pictures. I did this for my grandchildren. So, I'm disappointed too.
The book is okay, but no pictures is a bummer
Performance was fine.
My grandkids might.
Wish there were pictures to follow along with the story.
