This was entertaining for us both. It was enough of a story to keep me interested and he loved the pictures. I told him we should read this one more often. I stretched the book out and read him one story a night that way we'd both have something to look forward to. Maybe I'll finally get my Mater impression right, if he decides we should read it again and again like with his faves. I have to say, I am ready for us to start reading some real stories to him. This was a good start but I'd love sugg ...more

If you've seen the Mater movie, it's exactly the same. It would have been nicer to have a couple new stories, but what do you expect from Disney? The kids liked it, even my daughter. I need to work on my Mater voice, though.

One of my favorite book sets to read, my son has heard these stories many times.

This was a cute book for kids. I liked how there were three different stories inside the book. It really explores a kids' imagination. It is filled with fun adventures that Mater takes and all of them seem to send a message about how you can accomplish anything you want if you set your mind to it. I recommend this book to kids between the ages of 3 and 10 because it is an easy read for children in school and an enjoyable book for children who just listen.

Cute collection of the stories that are from the movie shorts. My son enjoyed reading this with me as a bedtime read. The illustrations are beautiful (as one would expect from Disney) and the storylines summarize the movie shorts nicely. A fun read I'm sure we'll read again and again.

My son loves Mater's Tall Tales. He was a bit disappointed that we only have 3 stories, but he loves the 3 he has. And yes, these are like the shorts you see on Disney channel... what did you expect?!
