My 2 year old cannot get enough

Any additional comments?

My 2 year old listens to this every. single. night. While I can't say GP's character "voices" are that great, she is pleasant enough to listen to, which is important when you have listened to her for the past 90 consecutive nights- sometimes more than once.

This is the 4 "bear stories". GP gets calmer and quieter with each one, helping your little one to relax and doze off. Problem? After baby bear, the last story of the 4, when the child is near sleep, it automatically goes into the Spanish versions- which start out loud and full of energy- jolting the kid awake.

I wish they had set it up where the bedtime timer could correspond with the end of the English version.
