Improvement

The story is awesome along with the narrator. Sadly, I don’t have the book. I wish there were visuals to go with the narration. My 2yr grandson recognizes the cover and loved it! Otherwise, it’s great!

Terriable book, worse experience with Alexia

Trying to calm a screaming 1 year old somehow resulted in buying this awful book. It’s horrid.

Annoying narrator

Gwyneth Paltrow's narration is awful - slow, deep, silly voice. All the versions get dull: Gwyneth's torture version, then the "turn the page" version, then the Spanish version. cannot hold a child's attention.

No illustrations

No illustrations. Most other books for this age range show illustrations. They help a lot

My eight-month old baby loves it.

This is one of my favorite audio books for my infant baby. It's bilingual and that's what I like the most.

Kid Loved

Another classic book that the kids love to listen to. A fun, repetitive story that my kids like to hear over and over. I find Gwyneth Paltrow's narration just okay, but the kids really like it and thats what matters.

Classic Story Classy Read

I remember reading this story to my baby girl 20 years ago. Fast forward: I purchased this book again to read to my youngest child, a two year old baby girl. When I saw that audible had this classic listed for purchase at a great price, I immediately bought this version as well. Gwyneth Paltrow does an amazing job, as expected. What I didn't expect, was to have so many additional reads to the story. There was an additional, turn-the-page-at-the-bell read along, a Spanish version, and an additional male reading. We got to read this story for an extended amount of time with so much more learning than I provided to my child 20 years prior. The funny thing is that the older girl and the two siblings in between enjoyed this recording as much as (if not more than) their baby sister. Thanks.
