For young children

I read the other reviews and expected this to suit my children (4 & 5yrs) but it’s a bit young for them. I would think better suited to 2-3 years

Needs chapter titles

Fab but really needs chapter titles rather than just numbers because every kid has a favourite stories and they should be made easier for parents to find. 🤔

these are read picture books

picture books, have pictures, they are an essential part of the story. most of the stories here dont work, because the pictures are essential for understanding the story. its really a shame, because the performances and the books are lovely, but the format is wrong. They are not meant for a purely audible experience.

Good book but...

Good book but very basic and for the very young. Daughter's just turned eight and tired of it pretty quickly. Couldn't find an age range when purchased.
