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!!

not very good at all

this book didn't keep the kids in bed too much talking and not much time reading the story

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!

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
