Can't turn the pages, only hear Gwyneth's voice

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

My daughter and I would love this book (and we do in hard cover) but in audible we can't turn the pages. I've tried reinstalling and that didn't do the trick. There is a definite glitch, but not sure how to fix the problem.

What could Bill Martin and Eric Carle have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

n/a

What didn’t you like about Gwyneth Paltrow’s performance?

I thought her performance was awesome and they way she reads the book I just love, but our problem is we can't get past the cover because the pages won't turn!

Says English, means not English.

Isn't in English. Book clearly marked that it is in English. Now I wasted a credit on a book that is not in English. Minimum 15 words.

This is aweful.

Accidentally purchased on alexa with baby crying, and the quality of the performance did not help matters.

Don't buy this book on Audible

I was disappointed that the pages don't change so the child can actually SEE the red bird, the yellow duck, etc. I would definitely not buy this copy again.

Great book!

Would you listen to Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? again? Why?

I loved the two times Gwyneth read the story (one straight thru and one telling to turn the page). The man reading was ok. I didn't like the 4th chapter which is in Spanish and it was no way to erase it. The book has several chapters. Two with Gwyneth, two with a male reader and one spanish. I wish there were options to choice which versions you wanted to download and listen to.

What about Gwyneth Paltrow’s performance did you like?

Gwyneth did great!
