Thank you.

I appreciate you reading me daytime, bedtime, (and all of times in between) stories. 😊

Wonderful!

The story choices are wonderful and LeVar Burton reads them very well. I’ve already already been introduced to a number of authors that I might not have been exposed to otherwise.

Everything I hoped it would be...

I’ve been a fan of Levar Burton since I was a kid. His voice is soothing and compelling...it’s everything you’d want from a read aloud. Pardon the teacher parlance, but as a middle school literature teacher, I love being the one who’s “read to” again. He’s a master storyteller, and you can’t help but be captivated. The music and sound effects are exceptional. My favorite one thus far is “Chivalry” by Neil Gaiman (#7)...I’ve played it so many times I’ve lost count! Thank you, Levar, for continuing to make reading a magical experience. I am forever grateful.
