I love the illustrations that play with the audio!

This is such an odd story but we love having a good library of audiobooks with images to enjoy. We've been slowly going through and buying the audible books from the With Synchronized Images category and have found that some are mis-categorized and don't have images. This one DOES have the original illustrations and we just love that!

this one has pictures just like the book

so excited!!! This one has all the pictures that the book does and all the way through the story you can see just like in the book. Perfect for my littlest one who expects to see a picture for each part of the story just like sitting and reading a story from a book with Mommy and her lap.

I like the audio version better than reading it aloud

This is one of those books that we all prefer to listen to rather than read. The narrator makes the story more fun and all of my kids love it (ages 2, 4, and 6).

Best before nap story!

My favorite story to listen to with my grandson. A great story! He knows all the words. We've listened to it from the time he was two years old. We still listen to it occasionally, but he is almost six years old and doesn't take naps any longer. It became a beautiful tradition and left us both with wonderful memories.

exactly what we were hoping for

Nice playful but relaxing music. Excellent narration. Put my little ones right to sleep... I've been reading this story to my children for years. This audio version reinvigorated our appreciation for it!

painful background

I love this book. but the attempt to add ambiance just resulted in painful, distracting noise. Rather than encouraging us to doze off, we grimaced and decide we needed to return the book when we got around to it.
