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.

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.

Summer Reading

My son really enjoyed reading this book and enjoyed telling me all about it. He is a rising 1st grader and loves fun quirky stories like this.

Great Story

If you could sum up Miss Nelson is Missing in three words, what would they be?

best book ever

What does Cindy Haynes bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I think her voice was the perfect teacher voice that gives you the feeling that this is something that can be enjoyed over and over.

Any additional comments?

This is my all time favorite book to read as a child and I downloaded it for my cousin to hear. he loved it so much that he listened to it after it was over.
