Good value for money collection of stories for kid

My little one liked the pace of these short stories. She seemed to get drawn in by Ann’s rather unique narration style. I can very well imagine that she’ll want to listen to these again soon.

Diverse children’s stories

Ann Twigg was a cleaner and was working at the infant school when she wrote these. Really amazing, no agenda and good fun. If you want something a bit different, then these could be for you.

Children’s books with much simple creativity

Sometimes children’s books can be too complicated or too clever for their own good. These are just simple and fun. There’s no agenda other than giving children a story to enjoy in it’s own right. Thank you much appreciated.

Adventure, animals and brain swapping !

An interesting range of topics from naughty moles, to red man and green man escaping the traffic lights to two boys creating a brain swapping machine. It’s all here. If you enjoy these, go and get the other collection by Ann Twigg

Good children’s books collection for young childre

We enjoyed these a lot, but I do have one criticism, more about that in a moment. We found these books different, inventive and entertaining. My daughter loves Ann’s soothing and sometimes exciting voice. I liked the way that these encourage the imagination and don’t try to push some sort of modern agenda. Very refreshing. My only criticism is that it would have been good to have had all of Ann’s books together in one collection rather than split into two. Some of the stories are out of order and it would just have been better. I bought the other collection from Ann, too.

Different but worth it

It was nice to listen to some books that have clearly been written with small children in mind. No nonsense, just good fun for enjoying childhood. The only complaint is that some of Ann Twigg’s books are missing so you have to get the other bundle.

Pleasant short stories for young children

I was interested in these because they were written and narrated by Ann Twigg. I’d heard that she’d written them for her grand kids. I’d describe them as different, entertaining and not full of your usual political correctness. They don’t follow any other agenda other than to give listening pleasure.

Collection of nice audiobooks for kids

My girls love bedtime stories. This collection went down well as a collection of short stories. Listening to stories before going to sleep offers a nice change from the screens that dominate our world at the moment. At least with audiobooks, it’s the imagination that is engaged.

Children’s books with a difference

I love that the stories are short because my boy’s attention span is just as short. Lea's Magic Sunflower story is about a little girl who finds that incredible things can happen when you plant a seed and watch and wait. The collection makes a good Bedtime Story collection too.

Adventure books with Animal stories

What a fantastic collection of children’s audio books! It feels way more expensive than what I paid. These are good as bedtime books, I have a 10-year-old daughter, and a 4-year-old daughter and I can listen to these with both of them. Ann used to hold the attention of young children with these stories at the school where she worked for a long time. Great listen.

Includes nice animal stories.

This collection contains short stories that are great for little ones. Grumpy Grandad loves his garden and he is at long last freed of the annoying mole that has been obliterating his work by burrowing. The creator Ann Twigg wrote these interesting stories to engage her grandkids and the small children at the school where she worked.

Enjoyable books for young children

I listento these stories with my 3-year-old daughter. Ellis and Archie in the “Brain Swapping Machine” are two young fellows who are given an endeavor of envisioning something spectacular for a scientist that is coming into their school. They need their model to be more noteworthy, better, and more stimulating than anyone else's. They envision a Brain Swapping Machine! Good fun.
