Entertaining & Engaging

I connect my ipod to the computer speakers so the 5-6 year-old kindergartners could listen to these stories during rest time. They enjoy the Three Billy Goat Gruff, but many of them repeatedly request Tikki Tikki Tembo...and Strega Nona.

Not the best

I will be returning this one. Stories are not engaging. Music in the 3 Billy Goats gruff is annoying.

Not original reader, classic stories

Classic stories, but I was looking forward to hearing the original reader from the 70's that I listened to over and over and over read Tikki Tikki Tembo to my children.

it was okay

I'm sure that the Billy Goats in my time were not that mean! I recall them being a bit scary as a child, but these ones in my opinion, were a bit over the edge. Grandkids loved it. It was me that was shocked with the story line. Gave it a 5 star only because it kept the kids listening, even play acting.
