Praise for Brown Bear & Friends

"A soothing and amusing Gwyneth Paltrow uses her best bedtime-story voice to bring this toddler-friendly compilation to life."--People magazine
 
"Perfect for popping in the CD changer and handing your tot the book version for car rides, Gwynnie brings these animal tales to life the way a true mom (or dad) always does - by doing all the 'voices.'" -- Babble.com
 
"She [Gwyneth Paltrow] has a pleasant voice and her acting abilities come in handy, making the whole story cute and making me giggle a little when she does different voices." - Ashley's Closet
 
"Paltrow's dramatic reading mirrors calypso, jazz and classical backgrounds, and accents onomatopoeic verbs that define each animal." - The News & Observer, Raleigh, NC
