My daughter is just getting into listening to a story cd after I've read to her at night. So far she's listened to Paddington, Charlie and Lola, Roald Dahl, Junie B Jones (though I'm not too wild about that one!) the Disney stories, and Ramona.......Could anybody make any suggestions that we can try? I'm sure there's a whole load of stuff that we're missing out on!

What about the Worst Witch by Jill Murray?

And Mr Majeckia, I think it is by Harry Carpenter.

I know they do them in audio cos' they are in our local library. In fact if you have a good library nearby they might have lots of audio books to borrow for free.
