"May attempts to give each animal its species-specific voice, and she succeeds with enthusiasm, levity, and gaiety." (AudioFile)
"Any child who is not given the opportunity to make the acquaintance of this rotund, kindly, and enthusiastic doctor/naturalist and all of his animal friends will miss out on something important." (Jane Goodall)
My 6 yo boy and 4 yo daughter enjoyed this immensely, recounting it excitedly to their dad each night at the dinner table. Excellent narration complementing a delightful fast-paced story.
I could not be more pleased with this reading of Doctor Doolittle. Nadia May (who is probably now my favorite reader) does a wonderful job bringing life to the good doctor and all his different creatures. It's a great story too, which I remember enjoying as a child and now my own children are enjoying it.
This is a riveting story, with many a surprise in the plot; well spoken, great voices for all the characters, and read with much enthusiasm. Great for my kids (aged 4 to 8).
Fantastic voices, enthusiastic reading.
Entertaining, Adventurous, Funny
The animal sound effects made it so entertaining! It really keeps a child's attention!
She takes on the characters' voices, adding sound effects for that particular animal!
The whole book moved me to tears...of laughter!
Great to listen to with young children or grandchildren.
