Jamie Lee Curtis perfectly captures a little girl's simple, childlike celebration of herself, as she looks back on her childhood from the lofty height of four and a half years. This spirited view of growing up is perfect for the youngest readers.
What members say
My kids really like this book!
Would you consider the audio edition of When I Was Little to be better than the print version?
I haven't seen the print version, but I would say no. The only reason I would prefer the book to this audio is because I don't think JLC narrates it very well (and yes, I realize she wrote it). I just think I could read this book to my children in a much more interesting way and with much more enthusiasm...
What aspect of Jamie Lee Curtis’s performance would you have changed?
She's not a very enthusiastic reader, I find her voice very bland.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Not me, but my children like it.
Any additional comments?
Although I have negative comments concerning the reading of the book, I do like the book and let me say that my children actually ask to hear this one so I did rate it above average and have since purchased additional books by JLC.
