A Nightly Favorite!

I'll start by mentioning that I'm British, and it only just occurred to me that the author has an accent! My American children love the stories and have no issues with understanding the narrator. Although, the British factor must be a contributory to their ease of understanding. We play these beautiful stories each night. The accent is very soothing for kids, and as a plus it helps them appreciate and understand diversely beautiful accents. Enjoy! Its a must add.

good kids book

My 5 year old grand daughter loved it. It amazes me how a 5 and 6 year old can be so quite in the car when I play them audio books. Greatest gift ever. Well worth the money.

the kids did not enjoy it

the children weren't interested in listening to this story. they were bored. the accent is thick on this narrator which is hard for Americans to understand. my little ones kept asking me what the narrator was saying which defeats the purpose of buying a audible for kids.
