Says English, means not English.

Isn't in English. Book clearly marked that it is in English. Now I wasted a credit on a book that is not in English. Minimum 15 words.

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!

This is aweful.

Accidentally purchased on alexa with baby crying, and the quality of the performance did not help matters.

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. 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.
