After personally exporting, manually saving every chapter and then resaving broken out by book then burning each story on disc to play for the kids then it was great. The terrible formatting was a huge pain and was the deciding point Not to purchase th next 2 volumes.
The kids like it all
Nothing. She was good
No! No 5 and 7 year old is going to digest 5 hours of stories
Please fix formatting! I'm tech savy but the 3 hours it took to make it workable was extremely frustrating
The reading quality was fine, but it's impossible to seek around to a specific book or chapter.
No we listen to 1 book at a time. Great for the kids to listen to 1 book while I cook dinner. just right length.
The FORMATTING is HORRIBLE! no book breaks! If the kids want to listen to a book again - say book 1 or book 3 - there is NO WAY to find them again you have to start at the beginning and listen to all 8 till you find the one you want!! duh. we can put a man on the moon, but Audible cant anticipate formatting collections by book title so that kids can re-listen to favorites easily... come on audible fix this!!
My 7 year old daughter loved to listen to these while playing lego's or dolls. Much better than having the tv going in the background. She loves the books and has read them and is now enjoying listening to them over and over.
The trip to prehistoric times was exciting and entertaining.
While reading is incredibly important listening and using the imagination is also. This gives the child a different way to use their imagination. Audible books are a great way to encourage development. I also appreciate that Mary Pope Osborne does not use slang. I have found other audible's hard to listen to as they are written in slang or as if a 5-6 year old were speaking. Hearing poor English sets up a pattern for poor speaking in a young mind. I love that this author and this audible did not make me cringe.
After 3 days in bed with the flu plugged into movies I found this series. My almost 5 year old was just as happy to sit and listen to this story as he was to watch Pixar or Disney movies. Thank goodness I discovered it as we are burning through the series and are still sick 5 days later :) There are pirates, knights, ninja's, the Amazon and so much more. The imagination soars and we unplug from the tv. Its a win/win.
Great bedtime read. Our favorite children's book so far.
My son kept asking to look at the picture, so he could imagine to story. He had a smile on his face the whole time we listen, and he eagerly gets ready for bed to hear the next story!
Yes, but it was fun to see the anticipation of hearing the next chapter.
This series is magical and wonderful and narrated beautifully by Mary Pope Osborne! My kids cannot wait to hear more and ALWAYS ask to listen anytime we are in the car. Even I cannot wait to hear what happens next in the stories! It's so exciting when my 5 year-old yells "Run Jack, run Annie!". All of my children were so excited when "M" was finally revealed! What an amazing series and perfect narration! We would recommend this to anyone!
Great adventures that take you through time and places.
Every story takes you to a different place and on an new adventure.
Mary Pope Osborne brings the story alive with the excitement of each character.
Yep, kids already have!!
Love the author reading the stories and the kids love the adventures!!
My granddaughter and I listen to this every night as she falls asleep. It settles her down and she is asleep in minutes.
Trapped in the pyramid.
