I have the sweetest granddaughter. Shes a real treat the way her cheeks shine when she sees us coming. I love how she hugs me. My husband, Joe, and I take her out to the beach every second Saturday of the month. We always have a wonderful time.
Except on the way back she starts to fight with her little brother. Then Joe yells at them to be quite. I wish he wouldnt do that, but nothing else seems to works. When we got home one Saturday I over heard my daughter in Law telling my son that Joe is a driving bully.
Nothing worked until we got a copy of Fairy Tales Forever. These CDs really hold the childrens attention.
My daughter is nine years old and she has trouble sitting still for five minutes, let alone for a half an our car ride. We were driving her and some friends to a gymnastic tournament. Her two friends wanted to talk and yell in the back seat.
My daughter turned to them and said; SSSSSSSHH, I am listening. Its really good. We looked in the back later and all three girls were whispering to each other about the story.

Peter and the Magic Yo-Yo is the story of a boy who lives with his single mother trying to cope with the loss of his father. He dreams of reconnecting with his father. Peter uses his own creativity and imagination to escape from being kidnapped by the King of the Goblins.
Myia and the Sword of Light is the tale of a young girl who uses her resourcefulness and strength of will to rescue her father. Myia retrieves a magical sword and defeats a dragon by the strength of her determination.
Both of these stories teach that the children of single parents are not alone in the world.
We live in a world of deep despair and high hope. We live in a world of horror and happiness. We live in a world where monsters and angels walk the earth. It is wrong to tell children stories of sugar and spice that rot their morals and their brains. It is wrong to create stories that have no teachings. True Fairy tales run a risk. True fairy tales speak of Danger with a capitol D. Fairy Takes help us to learn the roadmap outside our families. Map that once included an entire community of people who we would have known from birth.
Communities raise the most successful children. A network of uncles, aunts, nephews, nieces, and cousins is necessary to raise the successful children, and the center of this community is not the childs parents, it is the childsgrandparents. Grandparents offer a gift to the child that no other person can offer.
So, what is that one gift grandparents give children that no other person would take the time to do?
Stories, of course! Stories and tradition, and through those stories, a place in the world. I cant replace grandparents. I cant replace the community that should surround every single parent in this country but I can replace the stories. I am a storyteller, and I have developed this CD to help children find their place in the world. I developed the first story for Matty, but I would like to share it with your children, grandchildren, nieces, or nephews.
Eric brings a tradition of storytelling alive for my children, instilling the values that I treasure as a single parent.

most effective way to teach children about complex ethical and moral issues. In ancient times, storytelling was used by the leaders of the clan, tribe, or nation to teach the children what they needed to know to survive. Fairy tales are the remains of that tradition from long ago when the European peoples were still illiterate. The act of telling a story opens the critical mind and allows the parent or other relative to communicate a difficult subject without lecturing or philosophizing.
Just check out any religious text and you will see wonderful examples of how storytelling can be used to teach ethics and morals. The problem is...
I want parents to have an alternative to setting kids down to watch TV or play video games. I mean, who can afford a babysitter like me? I cant travel to every home in America and say, "Hey kid, stop watching TV buy my stories, theyre better for you!"
I worry about how many Hollywood movies my children are watching. I worry about the mindless violence, the horror, and just the materialism on the tube. You never know what they are going to see or hear, especially if you have cable. However, Im a parent; I know how difficult it can be to get five minutes of peace. You cant get anything done because your kids are in your space.
The average child will watch 8,000 murders on TV before finishing elementary school. By age eighteen, the average American has seen 200,000 acts of violence on TV, including 40,000 murders. The American Psychiatric Association addressed this problem in its endorsement of National TV-Turnoff Week, stating, We have had a long-standing concern with the impact of television on behavior, especially among children.
Storytelling audio CDs require the use of an active imagination! They create a calm moment in a busy day. Storytelling CDs inspire creativity and require the child or young adult to actively listen to the story. They help your child build artistic skills and patience.
You can keep your child entertained for hours with these story CDs. Children cant get enough of these stories! Ive been telling these stories for ten years, and Ive performed them thousands of times. Now, for the first time, I have recorded these stories. They are perfect for children ages six to twelve, and honestly, parents enjoy listening to the stories too.
Hue and Joan Weikart say, We have two loud and energetic grandsons, earsplitting boys who are always wondering, Are we there yet? We gave them your CD, Fairy Tales Forever, and drove on a two-hour trip. We forgot the boys were in the CAR!
It was that quiet.
The CD is set up with multiple tracks for each story, so you can play one track a night before bedtime if you want. This is a great preparation activity for reading chapters of a book together in the future.
