I'm always on the look-out for books with accompanying audio CDs that I can play in the car. This series is quite well done. In Volume 3, the stories featured are "Rikki-Tikki-Tavi", "Paddy's Christmas", and "Hansel and Gretel". The narration is above average, the narrators use different voices to add credibility to the stories, and there is also accompanying music and other convincing sound effects. I like to play this series on long drives, as it keeps my daughter engaged, improves her listening skills [I usually ask her to retell the stories to me and she eagerly does so], and has increased her interest in different genres of stories. The book is nothing great but provides the text for the stories.
