My kids' favorite

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Strongly recommended for kids under five years old. My 5-years-old son and 2-years-old daughter love the games, songs and rhymes, even they are not English native speakers, and are listening to this book repeatedly.

My two year old loves this

Driving four kids around town is a lot easier if the toddler is entertained. She loves it, and the 8 year old and six year olds like it too.

Perfectly entertaining for my 2 year old

Would you listen to The Animal Fair and Other Stories again? Why?

Stories, songs and rhymes are at a great pace. It's interactive and entertaining. This is my favorite audiobook so far for my 2 year old because it keeps her engaged and encourages her to use her imagination, and it sure beats plopping her in front of the television.

Terrific

Any additional comments?

My 3 year old daughter can not get enough of this - it's driving me personally nuts to listen to it constantly, but she seems to love it even after listening to it 50+ times. It's saved us on long road trips. Highly, highly recommend.

My nearly 3 yo daughters demanded again and again after the first time listening

The cd takes you to the farm, jungle, sea side, train station, and town. We loved the lifelike sounds which were immediately recognised by the children. The stories were easy to understand for my not quite 3 year olds, as well as not annoying from an adult's point of view.
