My 7 year old loves this book!

My daughter has trouble getting to sleep, so after we read or make up stories, we put on audiobook stories to occupy her mind while she drops off to sleep. She likes shorter stories so she doesn't miss much if she falls asleep during a story. This book has a delightful mix of well-known and lesser known stories to keep her interest, and having different voices narrating the stories makes it easy for her to find the story she was listening to when she fell asleep. The narrators all make the stories seem that much more charming.
