Imagine the sounds of a kindergarten classroom! This audiobook is replete with chattering children, a warm but stern teacher, music behind the narration, and page-turning sound effects. So it’s pretty close to the real thing, an energetic tumble of happy confusion and learning. Narrator David de Vries sounds genuine as Jim, who is looking for a friend on the first day of school. The continual background sounds are somewhat headache-producing, but de Vries’s voice is the constant that pulls it all together as Jim does make a friend.
