Nearly a useless cast-off, Mike Mulligan's steam shovel finds an exciting job to do and endears itself again to the citizens of Popperville.

Slideshow is a cool feature

Classic book, good narration and unobtrusive sound effects. The slide show of illustrations from the book was a nice surprise. I wish all kids books came with them.

Excellent production and classic story!

Any additional comments?

The Weston Woods productions for young children are wonderful! Please add more of these and similar productions by Scholastic, etc. (classic picture books with narration) to Audible catalog.

🐱 Oldest Picture Book Still in Print 🐈 🐾

This book may not have been the first children’s picture book ever, but it’s the oldest still in print, and was one of the first to be awarded a Newbery Medal, in 1929. This version is terrific; the slide show, which is VERY well done, keeps our kindergartener entertained. The narrator is fine, and the background sound effects are not intrusive as in some other children’s books. It’s true that the illustrations are not full color, but they are the original 1928 illustrations, and pretty great for a book so old that the original text was hand-lettered by the author’s brother! Grade: A

YES -- Pictures in the Audible App!

We recently discovered these kids audible books that have the illustrations in a slideshow as they listen to the stories on their fire tablets in the app. My boys (5-11) are all LOVING discovering their favorite stories over again with Audible! These are a STEAL!

Where are the pictures?

We've been slowly going through and buying the books in the With Synchronized Images category. This one was placed in that category but doesn't show any illustrations other than the cover image - I wish we could get the illustrated audiobook version or exchange it for one that has pictures!
