great story but....

Unfortunately, half way through this story (chapter 2), a loud booming voice repeats the warning from the start which tells you that it may make you drowsy and not to listen whilst driving blah blah, so my little boy always jumps up awake at this point and asks "Who's that man?? Who's that man??". The story then starts again (chapter 2) with a man reading it (a woman reads Chapter 1). Perhaps there is a way to stop this happening but I can't work out how.

A surprise for me

We have been using this audio book to assist at bedtime for the last month.
Tonight was the first time I realised there is 2 chapters, both the same story but read by different narrators.
It definitely works on both me and my 3 year old son, and we are both normally fast asleep by halfway through the first chapter.

Awesome.

This has worked for my 3 year old every night for the last 2 months. He loves it and falls asleep about 15-20 mins in. We just use a Bluetooth speaker and play it in his room from our phones. Works a dream!

Highly recommended +++++

All very relaxing - UNTIL

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Seems to be fine until - at the end of the first run-through - there is a VERY LOUD warning to be careful not to fall asleep listening to it! (Oh, the irony...) If you're trying to get your child to sleep, stop it at 30 minutes to avoid having to then listen to it all over again to get them BACK to sleep.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Don't have the warning in the middle!

Any additional comments?

Remove that warning!
