Great story, great readings, not so great format

The story's fine, and the narration is superb, but I wish that they hadn't divided each narration up into multiple chapters - The Rabbit Who... is in two chapters, so you can set the sleep timer to turn off at the end of the "chapter," which is much better in my opinion. The only other thing is that at the very end, after it puts your children to sleep, in a nice loud voice it announces that it hopes that you have enjoyed it - I get that probably every audible book does that, but again - in a book designed to put your kids to sleep, it almost jolts you awake. if the forward and that ending could be in their own "chapters" with each of the full narration as their own chapters, it would be excellent! (It still is, but I wish that they had thought of these things before they released it)

Works Like Magic

My four year old daughter does not like to go to sleep and we would have hours of begging, crying, and screaming (on OUR part!) every night to try to get her to settle down and doze off. I saw an ad for this book in Parents Magazine and downloaded the audio book and bedtime has been transformed. She is now asleep EVERY night within fifteen minutes, with only gentle reminders to listen to the book. The performance is gentle and soothing and the meandering story guides her to relaxation. The best part is that she is eager to go to sleep with "Ellen the Elephant" now. LOVE this audio book!!
