Cute children's story

Strong cultural dialects were at times difficult but overall the story and narrators were very good. Really more about adults helping children, being honest and finding ways through difficulty than children being active participants but it teaches little ones to follow good examples.

The accent

The accent made it hard for my 3rd grader to keep up. He gave up after awhile.

Fun story for anyone.

I was turned on to Rastamouse through it's TV show and thought it was pretty cute and just fun. This story follows the Easy Crew on another adventure for those "likkle orphans." Listen and be happy.

Much Better Children's Books Available

This is an audiobook for very young children. It’s about a group of people who, at the governor’s request, help a group of orphans, who have won a musical competition, get to a carnival where they’ve earned the chance to perform. Several problems arise along the way which the friends work together to resolve.

This audiobook (I listened to the Audible version) seems meant to help very young children learn to work hard to excel and then reap the reward for their hard work. It also demonstrates how friendship and working together helps to overcome problems. I thought it started off very slowly, but it picked up momentum as it went along at times, the narrators were hard to understand, and I think the children it’s aimed at might have some difficulty understanding what’s going on without pictures. I don’t know if this is the audio version of a picture book, but illustrations would definitely aid a child in following what’s happening.

I bought this as an Audible Daily Deal fairly inexpensively because it was highly recommended on some group board. I find I’m not nearly enamoured with it as those who recommended it. I doubt I’d recommend this to anyone as there are many better books for children

Humor, Mystery, A Lesson in Positivity!

Quite an enjoyable story. We are fans of Cool Runnings the movie, so my son thought this story was great fun. The combination of good, clear dialogue and upbeat music, of humor, light drama, and mystery was a delightful combination. The message of finding ways to make "da bad tings good" is one useful message for old and young alike.

It took only a small minute to get used to the Jamaican accent. We are not used to hearing "wicked" used in a positive light, like saying "cool". Overall, it was a hit in our family.

Not bad.

Not bad. For younger children (under four) I think you'll need to act as the narrator to explain what's going on. I found the Rastamouse website pretty cool as it shows pictures of all the characters so gives a bit of context if your child isn't familiar.

An enjoyable little audiobook which put a smile on my face :-)
Some of the accents sounded a little odd to me, but I'm no expert so maybe that's just me..
Overall, a fun and lighthearted 'risten'. Great for kids :-)

Irie!

If you could sum up Rastamouse in three words, what would they be?

Upbeat, Fast, Cheery

What other book might you compare Rastamouse to, and why?

No less than the greats of Tolstoy, Austen... Oh alright maybe not. It's a kids book.

What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

The narrators manage to make each characters voice distinctive across the range of different ages, and still clear enough for everyone to follow. From President Wenslydale to Scratchy to Rastamouse himself.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Dwayne trying to say the word commonmentary. cominentary... sorry commentary.

Any additional comments?

Be prepared for a bit of jigging if the little ones are listening to it about as Rastamouse is nothing without music. And there are bits of steel pan and reggae interpersed between the scenes. Bandulu's cheese pie song stands out. Your ikkle ones are going to love this.
