It's a GREAT CD for family, at home or on way.
I bought this CD as one of my daughters' (8 years old and 9.5 years old) Christismas gifts. Our whole family engoyed it a lot while we had the long drive during our holiday vaction. Now at home the girls play it every night when they go to bed. I'm glad that I picked the good gift.

My grandson now ONLY listens to this CD!
My grandson used to listen to other kids music CDs, but now he ONLY wants to hear Talkative Turtle whenever we're driving in the car. He makes all the responses when prompted, and just loves the stories. Thank you so much for a wonderful CD.

A great gift idea! These stories are timeless!
"Talkative Turtle" is the best children's CD I've heard in a very long time. Not only is every element of production of the highest quality: the sound effects, music, not to mention the enchanting character voices of the talented storyteller, Robin Pease, but the stories themselves are treasures. These stories have been passed down from generation to generation, for hundreds of years. Why have these stories lasted so long? Because they are so good.
No matter where from around the world these stories originated, the stories and the lessons they teach are universal and timeless.

My three-year-old son LOVES listening to this CD!
My three-year-old son loves this CD in the car! We have a road trip coming up to Montreal, and he loves "The Talkative Turtle Story". Thank you so much!----Jeanne Whaine, Branford, CT

My kids know the stories on this CD by heart!
This audio CD is one of my family's favorites! It is in heavy rotation in our car, and my kids know the songs and stories by heart. It is a wonderful CD!

Jane Brown

Robin Pease is a masterful storyteller who engages the listeners
Robin is a masterful storyteller who not only opens the door to new worlds, but she invites us to come along with her, giving each and every listener a part to play as the stories unfold. Through singing, moving, and chanting, we are drawn into the action as surely as the jungle animals are to a watering hole. In this day and age when the pleasure of exchanging even everyday stories has increasingly taken a back seat to TV sitcoms and video games, this CD is a TREASURE!

Outstanding!
This CD is fabulous, and not just for kids. Adults will appreciate the stories and the presentation as well. The lessons of the stories are easily understood and the delivery of the material is just too good; so much fun all around for everyone.

Monique Campbell

My kids loved this CD while we were camping!
I want to thank you for your new "Talkative Turtles" CD. I have four kids, ages 3 to 12, and they've listened to it five times during the drive to our campsite and at the campground. They saw a rabbit and started calling him "Kwahenya", just like the rabbit on your CD! Thanks from a harried mother!!
