With seven stories from around the world, young readers get a global tour of the folktale genre not just by words, but sounds, as well. There are stories from Africa, China, Australia, East India, Canada, North America and Central America.
The Tell Me a Story audio book series engages a reader's senses and broadens their worldview.
Our daughter (now a teen) loves these CDs. That first year, she listened to them all the time ... now it is a once or twice-a-year selection. She loves the stories and the lessons they provide.
These are fun stories to listen to. The storytellers use a lot of voices and the music complements what's going on; it doesn't overpower it. I love the diversity of the collection, too. These are portable, but more importantly, they broaden our horizons.
This is an audio CD of folktales.
Grab a globe! Introduce children to the places where these stories originated. For older listeners, it is a great option for exploring the folktale genre and identifying common themes across cultures.
