Young Reader Reaction: Our daughter (now a teen) loves these CDs. That first year, she listened to them all the time ... now it is a once or twice-a-year selection. She loves the stories and the lessons they provide.

Adult Reader Reaction: These are fun stories to listen to. The storytellers use a lot of voices and the music complements what's going on; it doesn't overpower it. I love the diversity of the collection, too. These are portable, but more importantly, they broaden our horizons.

Pros: The Tell Me a Story audio book series engages a reader's senses and broadens their worldview.

Cons: None.

Borrow or Buy: Buy! You'll want all of the CDs in this series. It is a must-have collection for the home libray.
