    Between the fun sound effects the narrator includes in his reading and the simplicity of the story itself, "Mr. Popper's Penguins" will be sure to brighten up the afternoon of anyone who enjoys a cute, family friendly, and comedic story.

    "Well done - fit the time in which it was written."

    A teacher read this story in one of my grade school classes many years ago. I enjoyed hearing it again.

    Story
    "A children's classic"

    A lovely, gently humorous narration of a book beloved by my children; as satisfying as reading the book aloud myself and a much more authentic experience than the movie of the same name.

    "great story"

    my 7 year old listened straight through and cried when it finished because she was not ready to say goodbye to the characters. she wanted to immediately start the book over again. I thought the voice could have been more into it, but he did attempt voices for the characters at least and my child liked listening to him, which is the point. overall it was fantastic and I'm very glad I got it.

    "Cute story!"

    Not so believable. Cute story but I found the movie more entertaining & enjoyable. Not so with most books & movies.

    Story
    "Enjoyed by a sensitive 4 year old and her parents"
    What did you love best about Mr. Popper's Penguins?

    This is a charming story, and our whole family enjoyed it. No scary scenes or anything that might frighten a sensitive child. It was read at a pace that kept my 4 year old engaged with the story.

    Story
    "Our Favorite. So far."

    We've had an audible subscription for about one year and this is our favorite story by far. We are ages 3, 7, 38 and 40 and we've listened to it countless times.

    The narration is amazing. The story is delightful. As a bonus we were able to tie in some related geography, history and science to our homeschool memory work. Highly recommend!
