Terrific narration good choice of myths
Currently this book is being played for the third time. It's unanimous - liked by kids and adults. The narrator is a delight!
Now that the children are a little older, they're able to sit quietly for longer stretches of time - this is the kind of "chapter book" they enjoy. This coming summer we'll be taking some fairly long car trips. This collection is one I'll be pleased to have along.
Only one negative - at times too much new vocabulary especially when there are so many unfamiliar names and places. This is one book we'll not be able to listen to straight through. At least not until the myths are understood and known.
I rated it three stars for story
because there is sooo much new vocabulary in some of the myths. Well-chosen story perhaps but we almost lose the story in finding out the meaning of new words. In "Joseph and The Golden Fleece" for example, the sentence just played had five vocabulary words. One sentence five new words - that's a lot to expect for the kids! Given unfamiliar names and places even the adults can lose the story.
Really enjoyed this collection but would choose easier versions of the story.
