They listen to this over and over again.

I really didn't know anything about this series other than its inclusion in our second grade reading list. I had no idea that buying this would plant Freddy firmly within our family history. It began with this story, but we've gone on to listen to several other titles in this series. Freddy and the other inhabitants of Mr. Bean's Farm are wonderfully detailed and imaginative characters. Its entertaining for adults and children alike. It wouldn't be the same without John McDonough perfect narration.

Cute mystery story

Farmyard animals with personalities reminiscent of Winnie-the-Pooh, w Freddy as their detective solve mysteries on the farm. Reminds my guys of Henry Huggins and Ramona.
