Most people listen to audiobooks while exercising or traveling, but now children can enjoy audiobooks as well. This children’s audiobook is for ages three to eight. As the narrator reads this book, it’s easy to picture the characters interacting with one another, bringing the story to life as your child listens to the dynamics of the narrator. With narrator, Heidi Allred, she draws your child into the story and helps him or her feel part of the adventure.
Inishowen Cailín, an audiobook reviewer from Ireland wrote: “This is a lovely book for your child to listen to at night especially if they are in any way anxious at bedtime. The stories talk through some of the most common fears little children have; scary shadows and noises, and explains them away in a cute and fun way. I also loved how the mother sang a little hymn to lull the child to sleep at the end of each story, as a signal that it was time to sleep. I can imagine that with repeated listening a child would naturally pick up on this cue as well.”
In each of these stories, a mother helps her little girl understand her fears at night. In Shadows In My Room, Kayla sees shadows in her room that disturb her. Her mother answers all her questions about each shadow that she point to and helps her to calm down. In What’s That Noise, Amber hears noises that disturb her such as the wind and thunder. Her mother teaches Amber to use her imagination by turning something fearful into something fun. In I’m Not Sleepy, Cason finds every way possible to get out of going to bed, telling her that he isn’t sleepy.
Was it difficult to listen to this audiobook without a picture book?
Donna Cochran says: “Not having the book to look at the pictures, I wasn’t sure about how much I would like it. But I’m happy to say that I was impressed! With the author’s words and the voices of the narrator, I didn’t need the book. The words flowed with emotion and fun. I look forward to more from Linda Weaver Clarke and Heidi Allred.”
