My 7 year old loves this book too!

As I wrote in my review of book 2, my daughter falls asleep to fairy tales. She loves having so many stories to choose from.

Great Stories but poor audio quality.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Do a better recording. Some of the readings sound like the reader was 10 or more feet away from the microphone. I want to picture myself in the story, the audio as is on most of the stories makes me picture myself in a large square room listening to someone read. It quite litterally ruins the story.

What other book might you compare Favorite Children's Stories, Book 3 to and why?

compare to the reading of land of stories or the grean ember. It's not how the reader is reading, that I take issue with, only that the quality of the recording is poor.

How could the performance have been better?

The performance could have been better by reading into a microphone not 10 feet away from one.

Could you see Favorite Children's Stories, Book 3 being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

no.

Any additional comments?

Please re-record. I would by a better recorded version. I love the concept of a collection of childrens stories.
