A great edition for children, but not for adults

This edition was too childish for me. I found an audiobook version that is the identical story with a good soundtrack, & Jim Weiss's voice reminds me a lot of Jon Lovitis, which is just enough silly for me.

Great Book!!!!

An innocent, well written book that would particularly appeal to younger readers. The way Oz was meant to be depicted. Very well narrated. Lit To Go is truly a wonderful project, thanks to all involved! My only suggestion/request is to include the remaining books from the Oz series.

skip it

Volume varies widely, narrator's default is quiet but when he "voices" characters he often tops out the mic and hurts the listener's ears. At chapter 12, I gave up and went to look for another version. His speaking voice is pleasant and it would have been a better version had he just used that one.

Great!

I am very grateful that the book was read in it's entirety. Some of the voices the narrator created, particularly the mice and flying monkeys, I found somewhat annoying but my son found them enjoyable. Thanks so much for the gift of this classic book in podcast form. It is especially helpful on a long car ride.

THIS IS GREAT!

I love this. I downloaded all of the tell tale stories. The best part is that it is FREE. My mother says nothing is free nowadays, but she was wrong!

Worth a listen

I listened to this podcast in the car with my 2 young children (6 and 3). It did everything I wanted it to - let them hear the Wizard of Oz story in its original form. Already they're asking for more podcasts - a problem because there's a distinct lack of (free) child-friendly podcast literature and audiobooks (hint, hint!).
The story was relatively well-read, although sometimes the reader seemed to get caught-up on enunciation, causing him to lose focus on the actual storytelling. Also there was a lot of differentiation between character voices which made the story easy for the kids to follow, but this meant some of the voices seemed a little strained (the female roles in particular). As an adult listening alone I think I would have opted to listen to a different podcast book instead, but my girls loved it, hence the 4 star review.
Overall I would recommend this podcast, and it is well suited to children over 5 years of age.

I really like the book but the reader isn't very good.

The book is wonderful, the reader is not. He doesn't sound too well and the room he's recording in echoes, you can tell he's in a large and or empty space. The voice volume change between Dorothy and the Scarecrow is huge which causes my ears to hurt if its up loud enough to hear Dorothy, but if I put the volume low enough for the Scarecrow not to hurt my ears I can't hear Dorothy so keep that in mind if you listen. :)

I love this story

I have read this book many times, and was very excited when I found it on here. I was, however, very disappointed with the narrator. I was unable to listen to the whole book because the narrator drove me crazy.
