Delightful!

My stepdaughter LOVES this audiobook. She remembered the stories from it a long time after listening to it. This book is a collection of folk tales from around the world. The stories are varied and interesting, and there are songs in many of them. The songs are well-integrated into their story and aren't grating like some children's music can be. The narrator does a very nice job. Overall, highly recommended for children or children-at-heart.
