Weird gaps in recording

The recording has at least a dozen weird gaps where the recording stops and starts again a couple seconds later. Splitting hairs, but it is weird to listen to on a cell phone bc it makes you check for an incoming call or text when the sound stops. It is never mid sentence though. Otherwise great enthusiasm and subtle humor in performance.

What I liked about Shh! We're Writing the Constitution.By Ethen Mehlenbacher

What I dislike is the pauses in the middle of the sentence. I choose this rating because I love the history of America. I would recommend this book to people who like the history of America.

Shh! We're writing the constitution

I think it is very educational, but it will help if the narrator would have more expression while reading the book. Otherwise she did a good job.👵
