Most of the stories were really good!

My kids, ranging in ages from 4 - 11, enjoyed all the stories. I did have issue with one story; the History of Christmas. It had a fairly historically accurate account of Jesus's life but failed to mention God or why Jesus came to earth. I feel key elements to the story of Christmas. This did give us an opportunity to discuss our Christmas beliefs. The other stories were good classics that my children enjoyed. And it had something for each of my children that was appropriate for their age and interests.

Nostalgic

I loved listening to all the stories at Christmas time and into the new year. It was nostalgic indeed to hear the stories read as if listening around a radio. Brought back fond feelings of my youth during the holiday season.
