We love it!
Noa's stories are wonderful, genuine and new; her storytelling is totally engaging and entertaining (my daughter loves the sounds of the turkey in the mayor and the turkey story); and we feel we are learning about different cultures and times as we listen. Both our 6-year-old daughter and we have loved listening to this and we give it to friends at every opportunity.
