My Book of Sleepy Time Tales

An interesting collection of short tales. Some of them appealed to me more than others, but overall a nice collection.

The narrators alternated telling the tales and there were musical interludes between. There were a few minor hiccups with mispronunciations and a phrase being repeated.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

Beautiful stories and Narrators

4 1/2 stars

Narrators have wonderful voices and pacing for young listeners. I will enjoy listening to this again with my granddaughters! (When they get older, of course!)

New retellings and spins with our favorite classic characters.

Recommend strongly as a wonderful “stocking stuffer”.
