Great for small kids

Very well narrated, my 6 year old loves listening to it - have bought several others by this narrator as a result!!

sweet but short

At just nine minutes, I'm surprised this counts as a full credit. It's cute, but not sure I'd recommend someone else purchasing it, at roughly a pound a minute!

This book is way to SHORT

My kids are not getting to sleep because this book is way to short and guess what I have 9 kids

Not something we'd listen to twice

What disappointed you about The Gingerbread Man?

The voice - my kids really disliked it.

Would you ever listen to anything by Joseph Jacobs again?

No.

How could the performance have been better?

A different reader. His laugh disturbed the kids.

WOW!

I'm just going to say what I believe the grandkids would have said "It was so cool. Play it again". Well at least they like it enough to ask me to play it again. I could have just turned it off and kept on driving.
It's for kids, not grown people...lol
