Narrator Robin Miles's soothing voice is the perfect match for this bedtime audiobook. With an easy pace and calm, precise diction she lovingly carries young listeners through the gentle text, which teaches about beneficial behaviors. In uplifting verse, she describes various positive attributes such as being helpful, patient, gentle, honest, generous, graceful, and kind. This type of predictable meter and rhyme can often sound stiff or singsong when read aloud, but Miles gives appropriate expression to each phrase, making it sound natural rather than stilted. Seeing the illustrations while listening would add to the impact of the words by showing examples of the positive traits, but it's not necessary for a sweet bedtime listening routine.
