We love Julia Donaldson

My family loves these stories! Aged 4-12.
Both boys & girls. We listen to them in the car on long drives, and before bed time.
The stories are great & the narration is awesome also!

Great Bargain

This was an amazing buy, you get several books that the children love to listen to. I use this for my children in care and they love listening to books as they play. This is a great buy as it contains multiple stories and you can listen to a new one each day.

Chapters, no description like so many other books

It is all a bit lazy not to put the book titles in the 'Chapters', 4 books split across 8 chapters but no information ! Can you explain why you persist with this issue when everything else is to such a high standard?

Not what I expected!

It’s well read but some of the stories that I assumed would be read were actually sung as a song and I downloaded audible to get away from kid’s music that I can’t get out of my head so that wasn’t a pleasant surprise. I’d rather just have the stories.

Not for bed time

The music is too loud and doesn’t really make sense the story also seems rushed

I think this may be due to the fact I’m used to watching the film/programme which is excellent

Great for bedtime together

We loved this and have downloaded more. My partner is away, we have this on Alexa, my 7yr old reads along the book in his head and my 4yr old and I look and whisper about the pictures in the book. Lovely time before sleep.

Great stories, grating narration

Favourite stories read in such a way that means they could very quickly become least favourite. If you can make it past the Gruffalo’s mouse, then this is the audio version for you.

Great but not for bedtime!

Bought this audiobook to play at bedtime. It's great but lively and there are a couple of songs thrown in... definitely not relaxing 😂 we'll get lots of enjoyment out of it in the daytime instead!
