Teacher's Delight

As a retired teacher I remember the delight of my first graders as they listened to the repetitions of that great long name. They repeated it from memory and giggled as the eyes of parents opened wide at their ability. I was delighted to find it on Audible at such a reasonable price. I could not resist. As I listened to Peter Thomas reading that great long name with suitable expression, I giggled aloud again.

Tikka Tikki Tambo is a childhood favorite.

I remembered this story from when I was a kid. One day playing with my young boys this story popped into my head. I had to find it and read it to them! I wanted them to hear the story and hoped it would stick with them the way it did for me. They have enjoyed it very much and I am so happy that Audible has it. I wasn't sure if the story would still be around so many years later. It has made my day and the boys have really enjoyed it too! thanks 😊

great story, terrible narration and audio quality

don't waste a dollar on this. buy the good CD narration with the female voice narration. it's a million times better.

It was entertaining!

I was a bit distracted by the music. It seems to be battling the words. Turn it down a bit! Otherwise very enjoyable.

Moral Lesson!

This is one of my all time favorite childhood books. I love being able to pass it along to my friends and family's children! Listening to the reader and being able to follow along with the illustration was amazing! Made me feel like a kid again back at story time or being read to sleep!

story was amazing. when I read the reviews before I was curious if there were pictures. There sure are! not necessary to the beauty and fun of the story though. this will be perfect for car trips!
