The PDFs have between 14 and 18 pages, and each one is a richly illustrated, self-contained little book.
NB1: Most of these PDF files come with embedded audio, ie, you only have to click the loudspeaker icon to have the text read to you! (It works for me using Adobe Reader 9.) NB2: The remaining PDFs have NO AUDIO, even though a loudspeaker symbol is displayed. The files are marked accordingly.
