poor stripped versions of classic stories

narrator tried his best but ends up tedious and the classic stories cut down to very simple versions which lack interest. dissapointing effort overall.

no chapter names

it's very difficult to find your child's favorite story of you don't give the chapters their proper names. Audible please make your app more user friendly.

Easy to understand for a toddler

My toddler loves these- he’s 2.5. The slower pace and clear language makes it really easy for him to follow the stories. It’s great to be able able to introduce him to these familiar fairy tales. I think we will be listening to them for the next few years to come. I imagine they could also be good for children or adults learning English as a second language

Painfully slow

I found it excruciating slow to listen to. I had to play it speeded up. I wouldn’t recommend it if you want to listen along with your kids. Maybe if they were listening alone it would be alright.

Good for three year old

Good level and length for my three year old. Pleasant voice that is varied for different characters.
