Kids love it

What did you love best about Children’s Favorites, Vol. 1?

Personally I didn't like it because there are 42 tracks and no one knows which order they are in, so the kids would ask for a story and it would take me forever to find it! However the
Kids love the original stories which start at track 21.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Peter Pan is our favorite story!

Glad we bought it, but ...

Would you try another book from Disney Press and/or Tavia Gilbert and Richard Smalls ?

Yes

What did you like best about this story?

The stories are varied and largely well read.

Did Children’s Favorites, Vol. 1 inspire you to do anything?

I will be wary about buying collections like this in the future because they are a pain to navigate, especially when driving.

Any additional comments?

Label the chapters! There is a lot of content in this purchase -- which is nice -- but the chapters aren't listed or labeled anywhere, so a request to, "Play Peter Pan!" takes me AGES, clicking on each chapter and letting it start to play to figure out what it is.

No track names!

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would, with reservations. It's 4 hours long with no names of tracks so if you want to find a specific story you have to remember the track number or get there by trial and error. Frustrating!

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Adding track names.

What about Tavia Gilbert and Richard Smalls ’s performance did you like?

Lovely performances. My three year old calls them the mommy stories and the daddy stories.

Any additional comments?

I would love it if the Audible app allowed for a timer to be set, and if the tracks could be labeled, and put into play lists. Some of the stories I would rather my son not hear until he is older, others are fine. But there is no way to edit into a playlist that I can find.

Awful and thin. Kids hated it.

Story lines were so thin as to generate zero interest for kids. Narration okay but narrators had nothing to work with.

Total twaddle

Don't be duped by the branding. These are poor quality, terribly simple "stories", written in a boring, passive tone with no language enrichment and big, cheesy morals. Even with a great reader, these stories are awful. I regret the purchase!

Too violent for a little ears

Some of the stories talk about death and have lots of fighting. It's too much for children under five. Beware. .

Excellent for long car rides!!!!

I have had the kidlets listen to some of the stories and the 8 we have listened to were fantastic!!! This is a must have for Disney families on the go!!

  • Overall

Not very good

The stories were not the real stories, they were spinoffs and they were after stories so when I got the book I was hoping for the real stories but they weren't the real stories :-( 😢

My kids love it!

This collection had more than I was expecting. There are original stories s about some popular characters from Pixar movies. But it even has the original story of Bambi, Snow White and Peter Pan! I loved hearing these classic Disney movies in a shortened story book format. My 7 & 5 year old girls both love these.

Just OK

Would you try another book from Disney Press and/or Tavia Gilbert and Richard Smalls ?

Not unless it was a single story - the complications are too hard to navigate, and aren't that exciting to listen too.

Would you ever listen to anything by Disney Press again?

Not a compilation

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

Better navigation for tracks - no idea which story is which.

Was Children’s Favorites, Vol. 1 worth the listening time?

It was just ok
