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

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.

Must Have!

This is a great collection of short bedtime stories. The collection contains a wonderful variety of stories containing everything you could want in a bedtime story collection. The stories are easy to listen and will keep your child entertained. Each story comes with a photo, which every child of course loves. They are very cute. Just be ready to be asked to listen the stories to your little one over and over again .

Good night bedtime stories

Sweet little bedtime tales to help little ones relax and settle down before bed. It also gives parents a chance to read to their children which is very important to begin at a young age in order to help children build imaginations, learn problem and conflict resolution, develop a love for listening.
The most important part is spending quality time with your children.

I hope this helps have a groovy day.

Hello guys I've listen a few stories from this book they are super cute . He did add on more to the stories which is great for imagination . Some of the stories just end weird lol I don't know if you listen them but some are odd endings I'm not sure if that was on purpose but I like these there short enough to listen to my son to get him ready for bed. I like that's there is multiple stories so you can listen one every night and there all different to.

Not a good audio bedtime story book

The reading speed and the tone makes a horrible listening experience for bedtime. Do not recommend for a bedtime story. Another issue is Alexa never finds this book when I asked Alexa to play bedtime stories for kids in Audible. It always played something else. Very annoying.

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....

Each story is short, so good for young audiences.

The star story inspired me to buy my granddaughter a starry night lamp to remind her of it. Each story is short, so good for young audiences.
