      Story
      "A Classic Favorite..Even Better"
      If you could sum up The Cat in the Hat and Other Dr. Seuss Favorites in three words, what would they be?

      I didn't think Dr. Suess could be made better, this audio did just that!


      Who was your favorite character and why?

      This was a compilation of favorite stories, so there was something for everyone. Each story was read by a different celebrity. Dustin Hoffman reads Horton Hears a Who, etc.


      Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

      I can't choose, I really can't. Although, How the Grinch Stole XMas is my favorite story, of all time!!


      Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

      No, dole it out slowly. Listen to a couple of stories at a time, and enjoy.


      Any additional comments?

      Nope.

      "Pictures would be a good option"
      What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

      There is some distracting music in the background that takes away from the story. This book would have been better if it was accompanied by pictures from the books. No pictures and the mismatched music take away from the value and limits the applicable age ranges.

      Story
      "Read a little too fast for small folks."
      What did you like best about The Cat in the Hat and Other Dr. Seuss Favorites? What did you like least?

      Book is read a little too fast for younger children. It seems this selection and those chosen to narrate it was for adults to recognize? The Dr. Seuss app books has narrators that seem to read a bit slower for children to grasp.


      Would you be willing to try another one of the narrators’s performances?

      I really enjoyed some of the readings, but I believe they were read too quickly for children who may be learning how to speak. I really think the music accompanying the stories helps to immerse folks in the fun.


      Any additional comments?

      I wanted to comment on some folks finding the "Audible version" of this recording and perhaps mixing it up with the "Kindle Fire App", which is a series of 3 or 4 books set up as an actual application. 1) To play the application, you must make sure you are purchasing from the App Store on Amazon.com. The App allows you to read through the book itself, where people can click on the words or pictures to hear the sounds repeated. The stories in the book can also be read to you or you can read them at your own pace. The App would be located in your "Apps" section of your Kindle Fire. 2) The Audible version is a larger selection of stories with only the narration and no pictures or pages to view. It's a different item from the Dr. Seuss book apps. However! To listen to the Audible version on your Kindle Fire, make sure you have the Audible.com Application, (should be free) - which connects to "Audible" and downloads the recorded book from this website. Then, if you select the Audible App on your Kindle Fire, you will be able to listen to your purchase. _____ We have both types at the house, so when I saw some folks commenting that they were unable to listen to the Audible version, I wanted to help! :) I also wanted to try to point the way to the amazon.com application for the Dr. Seuss book as an app for Kindle Fire.

      "Cat in the Hat Rocks"
      What made the experience of listening to The Cat in the Hat and Other Dr. Seuss Favorites the most enjoyable?

      My boys (aged 2 and 5) love this book. The characterizations that the different actors give make them want to listen to it over and over. They love listening to it while they are playing, laying down, and in the car. They've got some of it memorized because of the actors. They love it.


      What did you like best about this story?

      The boys loved everything.


      What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

      The different voices, the rhymning, pretty much everything.


      Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

      No

      Story
      "We All Enjoyed this one"

      Ideal for a family car trip. Adults enjoyed working out who the voice talents were, and all the beloved stories were well narrated. At two hours this is well worth the credit.

      The reason I did not give this 5 stars is the music is a bit too intrusive (I have a child that is hard of hearing, and the background music would sometimes obscure out the words).
