The narration by Donna German is very good. This very short story is a perfect introduction to the world of crystals and the fun and fascination gained from learning.
I liked the interaction between Julie and her father. They appeared to be inspired by each other! Young children and early readers will be encouraged to find out more about the fascination of crystals!
Donna's narration is very precise and clear. It certainly brings-out the warmth between Julie and her father.
Not really, but I liked the humour in this short story - particularly by Julie.
A perfect platform for promoting the picture book.
