"Kids of all ages will devour this. 'When I was little, I didn't understand time outs. Now I do, but I don't like them.' Families will be writing their own 'When I Was Little' remembrances." (Children's Literature)
I haven't seen the print version, but I would say no. The only reason I would prefer the book to this audio is because I don't think JLC narrates it very well (and yes, I realize she wrote it). I just think I could read this book to my children in a much more interesting way and with much more enthusiasm...
She's not a very enthusiastic reader, I find her voice very bland.
Not me, but my children like it.
Although I have negative comments concerning the reading of the book, I do like the book and let me say that my children actually ask to hear this one so I did rate it above average and have since purchased additional books by JLC.
