My nearly 3 yo daughters demanded again and again after the first time listening

The cd takes you to the farm, jungle, sea side, train station, and town. We loved the lifelike sounds which were immediately recognised by the children. The stories were easy to understand for my not quite 3 year olds, as well as not annoying from an adult's point of view.

Fun! . The kids in the car want this one on all the time .
I have put other audiobooks on but this is their favorite.
Upon first listen I thought I had wasted my money but after 2 months
repeatedly playing this one for the kindygarten and school run they still want to listen to it. even other school friends are singing along .
I will be looking for another one of these .

My kids' favorite

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Strongly recommended for kids under five years old. My 5-years-old son and 2-years-old daughter love the games, songs and rhymes, even they are not English native speakers, and are listening to this book repeatedly.
