Boring without the physical book to view.

Would be great if used in conjunction with the physical book but terribly boring when only listening to it.
The narration and sound effects are great but there's just not enough words or descriptions to construct enough imagination to make it enjoyable. At least that's what myslef and my 4 children (ages 5 - 10 years) thought.
