9 month old bed time delight

Play it through an Bluetooth lava lamp speaker to my son Ari at bedtime and he drifts off to sleep every time. Has never made it past the third chapter.

Lovely story, magically brought to life.

Where does The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Other Stories rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is a lovely audiobook of the famous children's story. The music featured during the story really brings it to life, and makes it more entertaining for little ones to listen to. There are more stories featured in this audiobook too, not just the Very hungry Caterpillar which was a nice surprise.

What other book might you compare The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Other Stories to, and why?

My two year old toddler really likes to hear short stories such as this and Brown Bear, Brown Bear What do you see? The addition of music to of these relatively short stories, makes them very entertaining and engaging for very small children.

Beautiful bedtime listening

I love these stories. I can already feel the nostalgia that will fill me in years to come, when I listen to the music long after my children have outgrown it.
Beautiful bedtime listening.
