Good Selection

Would you listen to Favorite Children's Stories again? Why?

Yes...my kids love the stories.

What does uncredited bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Reading brought the stories alive!

Any additional comments?

Had to raise the treble a bit in car to cut through road noise.
