A favorite listen, again and again

Any additional comments?

I was looking for a collection of bedtime stories for the nights when my children are restless, and when I saw the name "Thornton Burgess", I knew I'd found a treasure. We've been listening to this collection for over a year now and the stories have become dear friends. I highly recommend this and all of Burgess' works for children.
