Awesome introduction for children to the Odyssey
Would you consider the audio edition of Tales from the Odyssey to be better than the print version?
Yes, especially for children. I think this tale can really move, interest, and excite children w/reading but often they don't receive this introduction because the versions of it are difficult to read. This series has brought to life The Odyssey for my family and I love it. Great great job. Now if I could get The Story of the World series in a downloadable version by Susan Wise Bauer--that would also be great.
I can't think of a better reason to allow my 10 year old to stay up way past her bedtime which occurred every time I played this series at night after she finished her regular reading.
