My post is maybe non-topic consultation.
Can not find a more appropriate place.

I can't decide how to create it. I mean artistic wise not technical wise.
should i make whole story in one voice of a narrator?
Or make some voices of the various characters.
There is a father and mother, and their son. Of course with the dialogues between them.
On the one hand it feels very nice, and will interest the readers audience (children) to hear the text with different voices and characters. Just like radio shows of yesteryear.
But the question is, does it getting to be like an animated movie on TV. Maybe it loses the effect of "book".

What do you think?

Thanks :)

And forgot to ask, about some sound samples or effects that I want to add.
Is this crossing the line :) ?

for example, there is a scene in the kitchen, and I want some faucet, plates and water sounds on the background.
or for example bathing sounds on the bathroom.
is that too much for an audio book? :)

what do you think?

for some reason can't find solid examples for that kind of audio books :)
