I am a special education teacher and one of my goals is to keep my kids on track with the general education kids. This audio book reading of the book was a wonderful tool that kept my kids at or ahead of the general education classes, lifting their self esteem and confidence, as well as exposing them to grade level language. The story itself was perfect for them. They really enjoyed all the drama and twists in the story.
My kids never wanted to hear me read! Alyssa had such a wonderful personality in the story with such perfect intonation, pitch and tone, that they preferred hearing the audible over read aloud.
I just listened to this book, so I could review it for my 5th grade students. The story is based on the power of imagination. I never expected it to be layered with so many themes and twists! I can't wait to read this aloud to my class!
It help me get an A on my test. and it was clear too.the voice's are great
I read this book when I was young. I decided to listen to help me pass time on an airplane, something not very important or intellectually stimulating. It was even better, because as a young girl, I didn't pick up on so many parts of the story. It brought back nostalgia as well, so the overall enjoyment was so much more. It's a great book, both from a young perspective, and an adult one.
Great. Totally recommend it to everyone. Would read again. The narrator is really good! Read it
Not for very young. Upsetting subject matter. Children do not really need to read about a serial child killer.
