Well done

Nice range of stories - some single voice and some dramatized but all well done.

Good stuff but...

What did you love best about Favorite Children's Stories?

My grand kids and I loved the stories, both single voice and multiple. Great stories and very good readers.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Favorite Children's Stories?

Too many to count.

Any additional comments?

The one problem is that this recording is a bit old..not digital quality. In the car it was a bit hard to hear clearly at first but...once I upped the treble...they were fine. Looking forward to getting more of these Volumes.

Good Selection

Would you listen to Favorite Children's Stories again? Why?

Yes...my kids love the stories.

What does uncredited bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Reading brought the stories alive!

Any additional comments?

Had to raise the treble a bit in car to cut through road noise.

poor audio quality

The stories are great. But sorry, this book is really hard to listen to, especially in the car. Sounds like an old gramophone recording. The "strange" thing is that the listening sample is the only story that has acceptable sound.

like someone rerecorded library records

Anyone could have done a better job producing (reproducing?) this collection from the their neglected basement tandy 1000 computer. The varying levels of volume from voice to voice within the same scenes were kind of charming (retro i hope?). The weird tangy echo present across the board was distracting at first...but the stories were fun. Who doesnt love a good, scary fairy tale?
