a must listen!

Max gets sent to bed without dinner, and rather than spiraling down, he lets his imagination take over. It is a simple, but great premise. What makes this book special is that it demonstrates how a child can channel his negative emotions into imagination.

This book is a true classic, one that i totally remember loving as a child. i remember our town librarian reading this to us aloud, and she seem to have a way to make the whole book come alive....You MUST check out the audio version of it, the drama and narration really help to bring it alive, while still letting the young person build the images in their own imagination.

Nostalgic and Magical.

Four award winning children's books bundled in this package. This was the first audio book I download for my five year old. She listened to it on my kindle again and again since. All of the stories are captivating, well read and dramatized with music, but Where the Wild Things Are is the clear favorite. This purchase was such a success, I've downloaded a few more, and yet she still chooses this one to listen to. All four are classics, and the audible format is a great way to introduce or reinforce these stories.

Good for inspiration, not for enjoyment

The performances are fairly well done, but some of the stories don't translate well to pure audio. If you had the companion books, this would be a pretty good listen. However, I think when reading with children, there is a certain quality of character that comes out better when you read these stories live. So only get this if you want to get some ideas on how to read these books.

Worth the money

This is definitely worth the money. Owl Moon is a beautiful story, beautifully told. Doctor DeSoto is charming and fast-moving. The other two are excellent, as well.

Multi book title audio book

The sound was jagged and was hard to hear . I would like my credit back from this book.
