What a great narrator!

The first thing that stood out to me in this book was the narrator. Great voice and was able to alter it accordingly. This book was also really great because of everything there is to learn. I listened to a good bit of it myself (I'm in my 40's) and I can say that I certainly learned how many things were invented - and by accident. It's a good lesson for kids. Sky is the limit - they may make the next "accidental invention". Highly recommended!
