These are okay bedtime stories.

My kids were really fans of these. I do really know why or anything, but they did. It's great for the fact that it was a free book, but it just was really anything my kids loved.

Great voice of the person who reads it

I was looking for book read by somebody with soft voice and this narrator is exactly what I was looking for. The story itself are ok but almost all the one we listen contain the character to be disappointed or sad. I wanted to find more of a positive stories. We will listen to this book but defiantly will look for other as well

Our twins love these stories!

Our four year old twins look forward to these stories every night before bed. They are the cutest stories about friends, family, adventures, packed woth good moral lessons. Each short story is only a few pages long but they really grab the attention of the little ones. Highly recommend.

Great short stories!

I have a 4 year old that I listen to . having something new to listen to him is always great. It is great short stories which is nice since I can only listen to him for so long before he gets bored anyway! I enjoy the stories as well so it is great! Good choice for everyone being able to enjoy them! My 10 year old enjoys them when I am reading to the baby as well!

Good story for baby anytime of the day

A good story for kids especially for bedtime stories so they can have a good night sleep. They have also some free stories that are so awesome to listen for baby or kids. My baby likes listening to stories because I listen books to her even though she is just 3 years but it is fun to expose them to these kind of good story book. Fun to listen as well! Wish they make more illustration for more visualization and add enjoyment for kids. But overall it is great.

cute bedtime stories

A few great stories for bedtime. No better way to get a little extra bonding time with your kids. I feel like you can't ever have too many books, these are cute stories that make a great addition. Your kids will have to use their imaginations, because this only has one picture per story.
I received this in exchange for my honest review.

For kids with ADHD!!?

The stories were good enough, but the narrator was terrible. She just rushed through the book, even my child said she reads too fast. It was slow enough to understand her but fast enough where you could tell she just wanted it over and done with. You can obviously slow it down but when you do, it sounds slightly distorted so that ruins it.

The other horrible thing about this was the amount of times she kept saying the names of the characters!! For example chapter 10, the amount of times I heard her say "Toby said" "Toby did" "Toby wanted" Toby thought"!!!!!!!!! omg, just say Toby, and then refer to him as he. And the same happens in all the other chapters with other characters' names. 30% was story and 70% was character names 😠

Don't think I'll be getting more audiobooks written by this author, nor read by this narrator.

Really very boring

I think the reason this collection is called ‘Short’ bedtime stories for kids is because the narrator sounds like she is in a hurry and rushes her way through the stories without a pausing.
They do the job though, both child and myself asleep within five minutes every time we listen to this, mainly because these stories are very, very boring....

If my four years old can listen to the entire audiobook, then it must be a great one. He enjoyed all the stories. Great bedtime story!
