Screech in the background

There is a terrible high pitched screech in the background that I’ve never had on any of my previous audible books. It was very distracting.

Wonderful lesson to be learned

Insightful little story that gives some lessons about giving that everyone needs to think about at Christmas. Gave me good memories of my childhood when I read it the first time.

Gift of the Magi

I'll keep this in my phone forever. To maybe have my son listen to every Christmas. To remind him of what Christmas is really about.
