Great beginning chapter book

I enjoyed the Nurse Matilda books when I was a kid, but I was a little wary of the audio version, as Ardizzone's illustrations were a big part of the appeal. I was glad to find that the audio version was a big hit.

My daughter (4) has been listening to "chapter" books, but they have tended to be more like serial stories (e.g. Pippi Longstocking, Winnie the Pooh) where individual chapters are self-contained. Nurse Mathilda is a good middle ground between these and true chapter books. There is an overarching story wherein the children are gradually taught to improve their habits and Nurse Mathilda gradually transforms herself, but the chapters themselves are episodic. Each chapter is a mini-story within the arc of the overall story.

The story itself is funny and the narrator does a good job.

Fun and engaging.

This is the book that inspired the movie "Nanny McPhee", It is read very well by the narrator and is a fun story that will keep the kids well entertained for a few hrs. in the car. The grown ups will also enjoy it
