Magic hear Dec 15, 2007
Bravo to Naxos for recording these tales in their original, unvarnished form. Admittedly dark at times, but, then again, so is life-- no matter how much we try to sugarcoat, better to prepare our kids what lies ahead with the help of magical examples and traditional folktales. These will bring out the kid by the campfire in all. Kudos to Laura Paton's animated readings. A great pleasure to listen to at bedtime, with or without the kids.
Grimms' audio tales 2 Dec 31, 2006
The actress who reads the stories in this second installment of the grimms' tales does a lovely job, she reads at a good clip, not too fast for anyone 5 or above. The choice of very not german music in the introductions of the stories is odd and out of place.
Plain stories, fast reading Dec 26, 2006
I got this 2CD set as well as the Andersen's tales one. The latter is so much better: better stories, better reading. This set (Grimms' Tales) features some depressing stories, and the English reader's speed is way too fast for children. If you only need one fairy tales CD, get the Andersen's set, also from the same publisher. See my review there.
