Estate planning lawyer and mom to two boys. My older son liked audiobooks as an infant, and I've listened to a lot since then.
The Who Was...series is one of my kids' favorites, especially out of the educational titles they listen to.
Harry and his wife are both compelling characters.
He is definitely a pleasant narrator. He doesn't intrude but keeps one engaged.
I have always found Houdini's story a bit sad but thankfully some of the poignant aspects were downplayed, which helped with listening to it before bed with my 12 year old.
I'd recommend this series to anyone looking for educational audios for kids that they will see simply as entertainment. Both my 12 and 15 year old have enjoyed them -- as have I.
