Son loved this Christmas audio
My son loved this short audio, and we were glad to listen to it on Christmas Eve, no less. Only downside was that it didn't seem a professionally produced audio and that was a bit distracting to the adult listener. The reader had a lovely voice, however. And it is a very sweet story.
One additional disappointment - it sounds like the hard copy book has some nonfiction material that wasn't included here. We would have enjoyed learning more.
