Well done

Nice range of stories - some single voice and some dramatized but all well done.

Good stuff but...

What did you love best about Favorite Children's Stories?

My grand kids and I loved the stories, both single voice and multiple. Great stories and very good readers.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Favorite Children's Stories?

Too many to count.

Any additional comments?

The one problem is that this recording is a bit old..not digital quality. In the car it was a bit hard to hear clearly at first but...once I upped the treble...they were fine. Looking forward to getting more of these Volumes.

What a mistake!!!!

I bought this to keep a 5 year old entertained on long journey.
What a mistake. Some of the stories we being read like a robot and I had to skip them before I went mad.
Some of them had strange story lines.
I didn't realise that the princess and frog required the frogs head to be chopped off. Also didn't realised that goldy locks was in fact a grumpy old woman. This was just a few....

RUBBISH. This has made the rethink about the subscription !!!

We purchased this for a long trip, thinking it would entertain our younger children however, although we were looking forward to the many stories, the very poor sound quality and pure obscurity of some of the texts meant that we eventually gave up on it.
