weaker of the Rabbit Ears audios

My children and I have loved the Rabbit Ears series for years. This is one of the weaker ones - it is very light on the "story" and mostly Christmas music. I'm not unhappy to have it but it isn't up to the usual caliber of their usual offerings - short stories with famous narrators, usually ideal for little ones to fall asleep to.

if you can get it on sale and your family loves Christmas music, it might be fine. I would invest in other Rabbit Ears audios first.

Too frustrating

The first 10 minutes is Christmas music, and maybe 4 lines from the narrator. The story was overwhelmed by the music. Returned it.

NOT the Actual Story

My kids and I purchased hoping to hear one of our favorite books read aloud with a few songs intertwined. Not at all what we received. A strange concoction of loosely related music (maybe era pieces, can’t tell) and. None of the good stuff associated with clement c Moores original.

Excellent!

My daughter really enjoys this book. She loves the music with the reading. She has listened multiple times and loves to fall asleep to it! She highly recommends it to other children!

What is this?

Too much bad music included... half way through I decided I had come this far, might as well see it through. Pretty bad arrangement.
