Delightful

The stories are delightful for children, but they will not be annoying to adults either. The sound effects are great, the narration is soothing, and I really enjoy listening to these with my child.

so good I don't remember it 😂

I always fall asleep before the story ends. I especially like Sky Magic, the third story.

fabulous book

I am often babysitting my four year old twin granddaughters and have never managed to listen to the end of one of the short stories before they are both asleep.

Amazing, I cannot recommend it enough.

My little one never makes it to the end of a story, he’s out for the count before then - every time!
Whatever the magic is, this audible book works so well at calming and helping my little one sleep, even when overtired.

Great for night weaning!

The gentle stories and soft voice really help to put my son to sleep, and have enabled me to cuddle him while listening to the stories without needing to feed him to fall asleep. The stories are the perfect length and can be listened to over and over again. I highly recommend this to parents night weaning toddlers.

Just what I was looking for!

Worked a charm on the first try with my 2.5 yo twins!! I like the narrator's voice and the gentle sound effects in the background.

So calming

Candida has a soothing voice and gently tells short stories about blowing bubbles etc. Like meditation for little ones. I don’t think my daughter has ever listened to the whole thing, as it quickly sends her to sleep. Highly recommended.
