    I'm a mom. I have drama in my life. I don't want books with the F-bomb, nor graphic violence. I read for fun and to bring my family together. I read for reducing stress levels. We have never had a television in our home and our children are now mid twenties to 19. We listen together and look for belly-wrenching laughter. So what is it like to live without a TV? Awesomely educational and inspirational. Each new book is a marvel.

    Story
    "Book one! And precious!"
    Would you listen to Sophie's Snail again? Why?

    Sophie has been introduced and there is a whole series from age 5 to age 7. She is smart as a whip and incredibly silly! She has mixed up words and she gets involved in all things 'animal'.

    I live Sophie! She is most of us as little girls. She is so determined to be a Lady Farmer that one can't imagine any other result for Sophie's grown up years. She is brilliant!

    Plan to giggle and giggle!

    Audible? Could you put these books in a series for us readers? It sure would help!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sophie's Snail?

    'And I'll have a small patch of corn.'
    'Corn?! What for?'
    'For cornflakes! What's wrong with you? Don't they teach you anything?'

    "Delightful Story"

    What a treasure Trove of listening delights in the entire series of Sophie Stories by the incomparable Dick King Smith, writer of children’s stories.
    Each story when read brings you to such a wonderful feel good conclusion of this special little girl Sophie, who is so determined, with hair that looks like she has been through a hedge row backwards. And her entire family including her beloved Octogenarian Aunt Al who lives in the Highlands of Scotland on a most desired farm!(with PONIES of course.)
    You and your kiddiewinkies are in for a real treat when you listen to the wonderful heart warming stories, read by Bernard Cribbens who has that special voice that puts us all at ease. Just curl up with the children and listen with them, you won’t want to miss a single word.
