5.0 out of 5 starsExcellent choice for auditory learners
Reviewed in the United States on September 13, 2008
Very pleasant speaking voices, the classical music is well done and offsets the stories nicely without overwhelming the narrative. The stories have morals well worth listening to in the car or at bedtime. The prose is well-written and has an excellent selection of vocabulary words presented in a very straight-forward and intelligent format. Thumbelina was one of the stories with which I was previously familiar and the others will soon become favorites, as with most of Hans Christian Anderson. Wonderful way to expose children to the written word in an interesting format. The stories do not seem to be altered from the original prose, although I would have to check that to be sure. Excellent choice for auditory learners.
The production is great; and, I just found the same audiobook (Thumbelina and Other Fairy Tales) packaged with an additional three audiobooks from Naxos AudioBooks' Junior Classics series: Happy Endings [AUDIOBOOK] [SPECIAL LIMITED EDITION] (Audio CD)by Hans Christian Andersen (Author), The Brothers Grimm (Author).
