    Story
    "Great audio, but not Pagan or Gentle Parenting."

    The audio quality is fantastic, and I love, love, love that the app actually shoes pages from the book (why it doesn't have this feature for other kids books, is beyond me).

    However, for any Pagans, or Gentle Parenting parents, I don't recommend it. The only way it might be accurate as far as paganism is how a little old lady may be visited for occult favors. That's it. The end. The actual magic she performs is completely unrealistic, and a mockery, as far as I'm concerned.

    When it comes to Gentle Parenting, the punishment the boy receives for messing with her magic pot, is to eat all the pasta that overflowed into the town. A more realistic "punishment to fit the crime" would have simply had him cleaning it up, not endanger his health from overeating food that has been in the dirt.

    "Great story"

    I loved the way this story was read, but the music was too loud! It almost drowned out the reader. I wish there was a way to adjust the sound. The story is great! I love big Anthony.

    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
    "Strega Nona and her pasta pot"

    This narration has music to emphasize each event or thought. While I enjoyed the music it is too loud when the narrator is talking.

    Great story. It is a good reading to accompany the physical book.

    "Wonderful"

    Always loved this little tale. Feels like an escape. Even captured my two year olds attention. Lovely narration. Lots of music and sound effects. If you like that sort of thing in audio books it wasn't too distracting.
