My kindergartners loved both collections of Nate The Great! They want more! We've listened to both collections at least 5 or more times. They also like the jazzy music at the beginning!!

My kindergartners loved listening to this serial! We've listened to it twice and now I just purchased more titles that would be fun for them to enjoy such as Afternoon in the Amazons because we are learning about the rainforest and respective animals found there. Also, I just purchased Vacation Under the Volcano because I have another child in the class who is very interested in volcanoes. I'm glad there are many titles from which I can choose, so there are plenty of stories for the children to listen to for the rest of the year---about 4.5 weeks left of school.

My kindergartners loved the first and second collection of Nate The Great! They want more, but there were no more volumes to download onto my iPod. I think they also liked the jazzy music at the beginning of the audiobook. I play these stories during their rest time. We've listened to both collections at least 5 or more times.

I connect my ipod to the computer speakers so the 5-6 year-old kindergartners could listen to these stories during rest time. They enjoy the Three Billy Goat Gruff, but many of them repeatedly request Tikki Tikki Tembo...and Strega Nona.
