Excellent

My daughter loves it, especially the songs. We've listened to it weekly for 3 months on the way to school. It is a steal for the price. You can buy the accompanying picture-filled book on Amazon - the pictures are nice for kids, so this is worth doing. I only wish Berlitz had more of these foreign language books for kids!

Good for kids

My kids like it. It's simple, and they speak slowly, repeating the theme words so they sink in, and then there is a vocabulary lesson in english AFTER they present the story in German.

HOWEVER, they refer to a book with pictures that does not appear to be available for download; there is a link for an accompanying booklet, but this is just a word doc with translations (I presume for parents that don't speak German).

I think this should be downloadable as well because the pictures would aid the learning significantly.
