Yes. My five-year-old asks that we listen to it nearly every night.
The little mouse is so clever.
Nicely read. Pleasant to listen to.
The audio book is best if you are already familiar with the story or the short-film. Not a lot of descripiton in the narration, itself. Buy the book, supplement with the audio.
This is a clever story about a clever little mouse that my kids (3 and 5) love. I don't think the 3-yeard old would get it (without having seen the book) if she hadn't seen an animated version prior, but she'd probably still stay tuned the entire time because of the performance. The narrator does different voices for all of the animals- super fun!
I recommend this book.
The kids and I love this story. Simply fantastic. I read it a bit differently and like to accent the rhythm and rhyme to make it fun for the kids. This reading is a bit more static. Overall still very good.
