Needs Chapter names

Lazy publishers who don’t name audible chapters deserve one star reviews. I’m sure the stories are great but I hate having to guess which chapter is which book. Sort it out. This is not rocket science!

You don't know which book you're on as no headings

Great performers but we can't really use this book. My daughter only likes certain books (is scared by others at night) but there is no way of knowing when one book ends and another begins - let alone chapter starts and endings! Given this is what Audible does - makes audio books - you'd have thought they could sort this one out! Same problem with many of their kids collections.
