I love the illustrations that play with the audio!

This is such an odd story but we love having a good library of audiobooks with images to enjoy. 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 that!

this one has pictures just like the book

so excited!!! This one has all the pictures that the book does and all the way through the story you can see just like in the book. Perfect for my littlest one who expects to see a picture for each part of the story just like sitting and reading a story from a book with Mommy and her lap.

I like the audio version better than reading it aloud

This is one of those books that we all prefer to listen to rather than read. The narrator makes the story more fun and all of my kids love it (ages 2, 4, and 6).

exactly what we were hoping for

Nice playful but relaxing music. Excellent narration. Put my little ones right to sleep... I've been reading this story to my children for years. This audio version reinvigorated our appreciation for it!

painful background

I love this book. but the attempt to add ambiance just resulted in painful, distracting noise. Rather than encouraging us to doze off, we grimaced and decide we needed to return the book when we got around to it.

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!

We love the napping house

The napping house is one of our favorite stories. I read it to my children with a bit more enthusiasm, which the seem to enjoy more than the audible.
