Bought this for the car as an alternative to the mundane and repetitive kids tunes we have on in the car and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. I was wondering if it would hold my little ones attention as he is so used to songs but after reading the books and explaining what was happening alongside the story telling it is now one of his favourites. I love that Richard briers tells the stories, there is a good selection of stories on the CD and the sound effects and music work well to hold the little ones attention. Highly recommend.
I love this CD. I bought it for my 3 year old daughter and when I am given the choice I always choose this as her bedtime CD; to be fair, she doesn't choose it as often as I do. The voices are so gentle and the music makes me want to drift off to sleep. The stories are just right for a 3 year old; no 'baddies' or scary surprises. Paddington is still the favourite in our house, but Percy is making his way in and definitely helps get my little one off to sleep.
A lovely audio cd. These are wonderful heart warming stories. Perfect for bedtime. My 4 year old enjoys listening to these as he drifts off. We only have one of the paper back books from this collection - this was an affordable way to buy the rest of the set.
My sons love their Percy The Park Keeper Books, so they were very excited to get this for Christmas! They sometimes listen to story CD's while they drift off to sleep, these stories are perfect and calming. I love Richard Briers voice!
The CD is really fun as the voices and sound effects are exactly how one would visulaise the story, . Its great value and very helpful on nights when you're feeling too tired and your child still wants a story.
Very entertaining stories from the lovely Nick Butterworth, and read brilliantly. My daughter listens to it almost every night. Well worth buying to develop a love of stories and books in a young child.
