I love the illustrations that play with the audio!

We've been slowly going through and buying the audible books from the With Synchronized Images category and have found that some are mis-categorized and don't have images. This one DOES have the original illustrations and we just love it! This was one of my favorite books as a child and I love that I can share it with my kid - who absolutely loves the story!

My daughter's favorite.

My three year old loves this. She has listened to it so often that she knows it word for word.

Just as good as I remembered.

I bought this book for my children because I always loved it and wasn't able to find a physical copy of the book. Definitely worth the small amount of money I paid. I use the app for playback and it shows the pictures from the book on my phone. My kids didn't miss out on the wonderful illustrations.

What did you love best about Miss Nelson is Missing?

The musical accompaniment that supported the story.

She makes the story come alive. It is like watching the story happen right in front of you.

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!

Reading picture sync.

The picture sync stopped working when the review prompt popped up, so I'm seeing if it works there rest of the way after I leave a review.

great for bed time!

loved the book. it's a great read for bed time when I am too tired to read. we close our eye and imagine the scenes. This has become one of my son's favorite bed time stories. He loves to follow along with the book.
