How do you entertain your kids when you’re in the car? Perhaps you put a movie in the DVD player or crank up the radio. Our family has discovered another great entertainment option while we’re traveling: Tell Me a Story audiobooks! These CDs consist of multicultural folktales told by award-winning actors. They’ve been praised by the School Library Journal, the Midwest Book Review and many other magazines, newspapers and blogs. The series consists of:
Tell Me a Story: Timeless Folktales from Around the World
Tell Me a Story 2: Animal Magic
Tell Me a Story 3: Women of Wonder (available on June 26, 2009)
We’ve really been enjoying the stories on the first Tell Me a Story CD. It includes stories from Japan, Turkey, the Czech Republic, India, and other countries. The stories are told with great showmanship by theater and film actors and accompanied by wonderful music by Laura Hall. (I remember her as the piano player on the TV show, Whose Line Is It Anyway?!)
These stories are a wonderful way to pass the time while you’re in the car or even stuck indoors this summer on a rainy day. The CDs are available on Amazon, CD Baby, and other online stores.
