Franca from Littlebrook Child Day Care

The kids love this CD, and so do I
Since I bought your classic stories cd I've played it while the children rest. We talked about using their thoughts and imagination to think about a picture that goes along with your words.
They love it!!!
Anyway, today two children at playtime asked me if they could use the felt pieces to the three little pigs. I didn't think anything of it and handed them the envelope. After a few minutes I heard them telling the story. They were using your words . . . word for word! It was adorable, I wish you could of heard them. I can't believe they memorized your version so quickly. They even added the pizza part. They used the same tone you did. It was great. They were so into it. When they were done I applauded them on a job well done. We decided to draw out the story and tomorrow they will tell it to their classmates.

A fine addition to children's audio collections
Rhode Island author and storyteller Mark Binder is the spellbinder in this clever recording. Telling both traditional and original stories, binder adds a certain flair to each story with his repertoire of voices. In "Abu Ali and the Donkeys," for example, Binder perfectly voices a middle-aged, Middle-Eastern man and a wise woman. In "Jack and the Beanstalk," the giant's wife playfully exclaims, "my husband eats little boys, but I don't. I'm a vegetarian." Binder's humor is well-timed, and he skillfully builds anticipation into his stories.... A fine addition to children's audio collections, this recording will also prove useful for listening skills, story times, and general listening. Tips for storytellers are included in the liner notes.
