I will never forget the first time I did this audiobook in Storytime. As this story is longer than the others, I wanted to test how long it could keep the children's attention! To my surprise, they sat and listened for the whole length of the story and remembered many of the scenes! They enjoyed the sounds of the farm animals and clapped along with Jimi's song. The funniest thing happened as soon as the fire scene kicked in! The children started screaming!!! I wasn't prepared for this at all and I didn't actually know what to do! The nursery manager came in to see what was going on! I was thinking, 'Oh no, she's going to tell me off', but instead she started to laugh, and I was relieved! Children absolutely love this audiobook and their reactions to it are priceless!
An Important Message
Not only are my audio stories fun but they all instil positive messages too! This story teaches children the importance of friendship, cooperation, tolerance, and team effort with everyone no matter how different they are.
Mother, Gamer, Writer like the way my children's stories are based on animals and are short enough to hold the attention span of younger children. I also like the way Bound4Escape commented on the dialogue being simple enough for children to understand yet very descriptive, so they are easy for children to use their imagination to picture the story.
I was very proud when I saw that Shelf Full of Books awarded this audiobook a 5 Star Rating! Kathryn Svendsen especially enjoyed the theme of this story as it deals with friendship and cooperation even through differences which are important things for young children to learn. Steven Brandt at Audiobook-Heaven also enjoyed this theme which you can read in his review on goodreads. More reviews here Bergers Book Reviews and here Priscilla and her Books.
Warning... this audiobook is lively and loud and not one for bedtime!
