Awful Audio

The audio is terrible. There are various narrators. As each one changes, the volume varies wildly. Some have a bothersome echo. The poetry was ok. I was disappointed. There are many bilingual authors and authors whose works have been widely translated that are full of rich language. This book stoops the level of “Roses Are Red” rather than focusing on exemplary works that ate accessible to children. There are some great poems and many that are just poems.
