Extremely Good

We loved the little stories in this book. Short enough for before bed, but not lacking in substance. My 5-year-old can listen to these himself without help and likes the imagination of it all. We have had kid bedtime books before that were boring, or your typical slightly altered fairy tales. These were enough to keep him interested.

This is a powerful book!

My girls love bedtime stories. This book is convenient because it has a collection of short stories. Listening to your children before bed a wonderful tradition to start. My 6 year is starting to listen to these stories to her little sister, so cute.

Great Tips

The book’s dazzling and my four-year-old adores it! I would just leave this audio story book playing and she will sit in a corner and listen attentively. I believe I just got her an advance but the best Christmas gift ever!

Extremely Good

My 8-year old enjoys hearing these stories each night. The stories are clever and written tongue-in-cheek. As you get deeper into the book, the stories call back to things that happened in other stories and my daughter really enjoys when that happens.

Good content.

The stories are very interesting and 'educational'. The main characters in the stories are courageous, persistent and smart to solve problems they encountered. The performance is very lovely. I enjoyed the book very much!
