TELL ME A STORY 3: WOMEN OF WONDER

Author: Amy Friedman and Laura Hall

Illustrator: Jillian Gilliland

Reserve at the Library

Publisher: Friedman & Danziger,

Summary: Seven stories (more than an hour's listening time) comprise this audio book. The stories each have their own theme, including fairy tales, myths, and tall tales. These are folktales told in a classic, animated storytelling style.

Type of Reading: family reading, playtime reading

Recommended Age: read together: 3 to 8; read yourself: 3 to 8

Interest Level: 3 to 8

Age of Child: Shared with a 7-year-old girl.

Young Reader Reaction: Our daughter has listened to these stories for days on end, multiple times a day. She got hooked on this series three years ago and still listens to the first set of folktales.

Adult Reader Reaction: These are fun stories to listen to. The storytellers use a lot of voices and the music complements what's going on; it doesn't overpower it. I love the diversity of the collection, too. These are portable, but more importantly, they broaden our horizons.

Pros: Families will enjoy these stories with life lessons that can be taken anywhere.

Cons: None!

Borrow or Buy: Buy! This is a CD of stories you'll listen to for years.
