Imaginative with no scary bits

It is super good because it doesn't have scary things in it. I really it because the story is really imaginative and it's so cool how the flower pops up and there is a little girl in it. (my 6 year old daughter's description)

Childhood Fav

Thumbelina was a childhood favorite. I found it quite fun to give it a listen. It's short, so hardly any of your time to give it a go.
