Commitment story

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, it's a good story for kids and adults. Mr. Crystal does a good job with the different parts. It took a moment to adjust hearing his voice do this. A nice surprise!

I used this book with my kids class at church. Keeping commitments thru thick or thin.
And to have it read by Mr. Crystal made it extra special.
