My children are 6 and 8 and upon 1st hearing the stories I myself thought perhaps I was aiming too high for them, but they liked it and insisted upon listening over and over again. Some stories are more quick paced and there is not much need for explaining such as "7 in a blow" which was an instant hit with my children, and some are more complex and takes a few listening and some explaining before they could fully understand and enjoy it.
I particularly enjoyed Bernard Cribbin Narration - pleasant voice and perfect diction. very well done.
My three and five year old have listened to these stories over and over again! I also read "Dick Whittington and His Cat" (retold by Marcia Brown) to my girls. This combination quickly became a favorite of my three year old. I can't recommend this cd highly enough if you are a fan of well written literature for children.
