Three cheers!
As an educator and consultant to schools and families, I know that children, teachers and parents today are keenly aware of the power of traditional wonder tales to help the soul to thrive. In the performances and recordings of storyteller Beatrice Bowles, with Sara MacLean's original music, listeners can enjoy whole, beautiful feasts of classic stories with universal themes. Children instinctively search the world for lessons, archetypal cautions and pearls of wisdom handed down by humanity. Hearing these stories at home or in the car or the classroom, children will be fed over and over again, each time gaining more solid footing on their pathways through life.
“We must simply be who we want our children to become.”
