India, a dangerous place

Both the story and the narrator were excellent. Riki-Tiki is indeed a brave, and swift, mongoose.

great childhood memory

Would you listen to Riki-Tiki-Tavi again? Why?

Yes

Who was your favorite character and why?

the lead character of course!

What about Walter Zimmerman and Cindy Hardin Killavey ’s performance did you like?

voices and intonations were similar to my imagination when i read it as a child and when it was produced as a short animated film

Great simple story!

I had always watched the cartoon as a child and it was neat to hear the short story read.

Perfect Before Sleep Book for My 8-year-old

My daughter liked this book enough to want to listen to it each night until it was finished. Sometimes if a book bores her, she will jump around to different books she is reading. Of course, if she dislikes the book, she picks a new one. I told her there will be plenty of books she has to read, even if they aren't at all interesting. When you are reading for fun, it should be a book that you can enjoy. She said it was a good book, but not good enough to read twice. She likes giving her star rating and knowing other people will use it to choose their books.
