Nostalgic Present

The cover image for this selection rivited me immediately. Memories from my youth flooded my being: the knowledge of how the authors' rendition of a snowy day painted a hauntingly poignant picture for me leaped into my heart as I added the enhanced version to my cart.

The audio version of the book is no less emotionally appealing. Yet the read did take on a different feel, as the choice of music and the verbal-scribes' emphasis on different words impacted how the story line was presented.

I wasn't disappointed, just had to re-adjust.

I'm happy to report, I now have two versions of this classic story imbedded in my memory. :D

I love the illustrations that play with the audio!

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 it! This is such a beautiful story, we're going through and getting all the Keats books from audible!

the synchronized images aren't working o<br />

the synchronized images aren't working on my kindle or the app on my phone. audible doesn't have a solution and the women I talked to told me that they only work on pcs??? a lie and an attempt to blow me off since she didn't have a solution. I'm really disappointed in the customer service.

Audible popups

Kept getting pop ups from Audible during the story. Includes story and pictures but kids won't like it if the pop ups (tap if finished) obscure the screen.
