Book Description

1 Mar 2007
This wonderful collection of stories has been enjoyed in particular by children around the age of five years. Coming from all over the world, they include the tale of Eric and his elephant, of the hungry hedgehog who decides to eat hamburgers, of the Indian King who never takes a bath and of the little girl who yearns for a special pair of trainers. These are stories to enjoy alone, or to share with parents, friends, brothers and sisters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stories for all ages 29 Oct 2008
Format:Audio CD
The CD is excellent. My daughters, who are aged 4 & 7, and I listen to the stories again and again, particularly in the car. We all enjoy them and all have our favourites. There's a good mix of traditional and modern and the actors read them beautifully. As a result, we bought the one for 7 year olds which my older daughter and I also love (my younger daughter doesn't understand them so well). My girls are bilingual Spanish (first language) and English, and the stories are also a great help in building their listening and general language skills.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sensational CD 5 Feb 2009
By S. Wood
Format:Audio CD
Wonderful selection of stories perfect for a five year old. Stories aren't too twee, which is what I have found of stories for this age group in the past. Just scary enough in places to add a bit of interest, but not scary enough to keep your child awake all night. My child listened to this CD every night for a long time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great CD,worth money,kids love it! 14 Jan 2010
By NATTY54
Format:Audio CD
Bought for my 4 year old but 10 year old will listen as well. 4 year old loves it, especially The Special Trainers story. Well read with variety of accents and stories. 2 CD's. Going to buy the 8 year old one as well. As we use it at bedtime it has no scary stories!

5.0 out of 5 stars Puffin Book of Stories for Five-year-olds 16 Jan 2007
By C. Ford
Format:Audio Cassette
I would highly recommend this tape for any five year old who likes listening to stories. It has a good mixture of traditional and modern stories which my daughter has found both entertaining and interesting. Importantly the stories are well read, clear and easy to understand. I especially like the modern stories which are both relevant and true to life. Good buy.

This was a big hit with both my 4 year old and my 7 year old.
They both love listening to a story at bedtime either from us or CD and they love these tales.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great stories for long car journeys 7 Sep 2011
By LJ
Format:Audio CD
Bought this Story CD to keep two kids entertained on a long car journey and it didn't disappoint. Both my three year old and my five year old loved the stories and it kept the grown ups quiet too. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Grows on you! 8 Sep 2010
Format:Audio CD
Bought this for a long car journey for our 4 (and 2) year olds. They enjoy them and they grew on me. A little disappointing that there are only 6 (?) stories so can get repetitive, but keeps the kids quiet so thats all that matters!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Puffin Book Of Stories for 5year olds 9 April 2010
Format:Audio CD
Bought this for something to listen to at tea time and trying to bring the kids down into a nice relaxed frame of mind ready for bed.

The kids really enjoy them. The stories are well read - clear and animated.

A good buy - also good for the car. Sometime you just need them to have something to focus on - which is good for the kids and for mummy and daddy!!
