Audible Editor Reviews

Internationally acclaimed storyteller and folklorist Margaret Read MacDonald uses bedtime stories to end story hours on a calm note, and in this collection, she includes seven of her favorites from around the world. MacDonald clearly understands how to manage a young audience, her voice swoops and dips with the action in stories like "Snow Bunting's Lullaby" in which a father bird creates a lullaby for his children only to have it stolen by a raven. MacDonald also finds the right touches of humor and pathos, and young listeners will find themselves empathizing with the characters. This audiobook is a wonderful addition to any bedtime ritual.

    "Horrible reader"

    Ugh, this is painful to listen to. The stories are good - buy the book and read them yourself. Please, please, don't subject your children to this randomly enunciated drunken ramble.

    "Good stories painful recording"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No. The kids enjoyed the stories but something is wrong with the sound balance. The music and sound effects were truly painful.
