We just enjoyed our first story, which my 4 year old wanted to hear twice! A pleasant way to pass lunchtime together when we are both too tired to make pleasant conversation. I love the presentation style. The story was familiar enough for my child to follow and introduced a few new words and ideas to chat about. Well done!
