I like the fact that both CDs are over an hour long, she likes that there are several stories on each CD to keep her attention. The plots aren't too complicated for her to follow, but they do force her to pay attention and focus on the cd, which is key for naptime. :) Stephen Fry's voice is wonderfully soothing to listen to, and he does a great job of distinguishing between the various characters -- key for books on CD!
As she's gotten older Caroline has begun to appreciate some of the silliness that is Paddington, but the stories are nicely entertaining even without that element. We parents don't mind listening to Paddington in the car when we're on trips. All in all, I say this CD set is well worth this money, it's one that will really grow with you!!
Of my favourite stories, I'd say that the Bonfire and the Christmas ones were much funny to read, and that the one involving the police was excellent as you see Paddington trying to solve two mysteries which happened in 32 Windsor Gardens.
A great purchase for everyone ready to give a chance to a bear coming all the way from Darkest Peru.
Enter Paddington. A very similar vibe, but more advanced character, story, vocabulary and concept. And how many early reader/read-to/read-with books can you call charming and droll? And never dopey, (and I mean you, Amelia Bedelia), or cranky or precociously rude.
Now sometimes we want silliness or adventure or broad jokes or fantasy, but for some of the quieter times, this really does have an honored place.
Excellent reading, easy to listen to and captures your attention. Even my teen boys don't mind listening in when their younger siblings are playing this.
Highly recommend - not only for the story, the voice, but also for the music and how well this was formatted and produced. Overall and excellent product. We have also ordered several other audiobooks with Michael Bond and the same production company because they are so well done.
