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!

Strega Nona

I loved the accent on the narrator. It made the story seem even more authentic. I did not like the music at all. I found it to be extremely distracting and louder than the actual reading.

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!

Background music so so loud!!!!

Wonderful story I love sharing my kids like my Mom read to me long ago. Narration is good too, even! Goodness though!! I can barely head the man speaking over the crazy loud “background” music! My head hurts, and I had to repeat everything to my kids for them to understand.

Strega Nona

I'd say to the the Sagittarius "hays for horses." A brilliant read for those that love a natural way knowing a persons culture and identity. Buona festa!

A family favorite

We love this story! And the audiobook performance is wonderful, however I do think the background music is a bit too loud.
