My kids love these
I take a lot of road trips with my four kids (1-9 yrs) and they really enjoyed these stories. The narrator was really hard to swallow though and I hate to criticize, but she had a very self-righteous tone to her voice and sounded annoyed or snotty a lot of the time--not how I believe the children would have read it who told the stories. Kids still loved the stories though!

Life lessons wrapped in deep enjoyment
Any additional comments?
For thousands of years stories have been the vehicle for knowledge, values, beliefs and facts from one generation to another. Human brains are primed to learn through stories, anecdotal evidence that engages emotionally, that paints a vivid picture, that makes us identify with the challenges. It's imaginary role-play; dealing with situations in your mind before being confronted with difficult dilemmas in real life.
Our 5-year-old loves these. She listens intently. Days, weeks or months afterwards she will bring up an example from one of these stories as a comment to something that happens.
With fewer and fewer of us having multi-generational villages with elders having the time and patience to tell important stories to all of our children, these are a beautiful and crucial addition to priming our kids to ethically reflective beings.
