Twice-told tales never told better-the talent is first-rate from top to bottom Nice variety of stories from around the world. I like that the stories had different narrators.

Twice-told tales never told better-the talent is first-rate from top to bottom. The stories literally jump off the CD and into the listener's imagination. I love the choices on all levels. So, when the folks at Tell Me a Story contacted us about their new cd, I have to admit I mostly just took it because it would give us something to entertain the kids on a car ride. I honestly didn't expect more than a time-filler. Well, this collection of stories is very much more than that. Nice variety of stories from around the world. Definitely would recommend to a friend.

I bought this audiobook and "Tell Me a Story 2" audiobook for my two first graders. Both kids love the Geronimo Stilton series, however we only listen to those read by Edward Herrmann and we have just about worn them out. (Not to take anything away from other reader(s) but once you lock in on Mr. Herrman's character voices it is difficult to listen to any other rendition - he is fantastic and I highly recommend!) Each of the "Tell Me a Story" CDs has about 8 folktales from different parts of the world. The kids find that to be cool. The stories are both entertaining and educational. The readers really bring the characters to life...btw, when you have a moment, read the BIOs of the readers on the inserts. The kids ask to turn on the CD player immediately upon entering the car, and the stories captivate them in a way that only a parent behind the wheel can appreciate! They often ask about words or things they don't know: "What does 'snickered' mean?" "What does 'felt betrayed' mean?" "Is there really a city called Osaka?". Overall a great investment: entertaining, educational, captivating, and fewer back-seat cries of "...he's touching me!!" Negative? The hour or so of stories seems to go by fast and in just a few short car trips you are back to the first story. If your kids are like mine, you might want to have additional audiobooks or forms of entertainment available - depending of course on YOUR tolerance level.

I purchased this before a road trip to take along with us. We thoroughly enjoyed the stories, adult and children (ages 5-13) alike. Nice variety of stories from around the world. I like that the stories had different narrators. Definitely would recommend to a friend.

Wonderful and hypnotic is what I would call this. The first story I played for my two girls (6 and 8) in the car on the way to school. It was the first time they ever made it the whole ride in total silence. After just the FIRST story, they begged for me to play it again, but it was time for school. When I picked them up, they asked right away. So So this is what we have done the last three days; listen to a new story on the way to school. I'm only on the third, The Selkie Bride. My oldest daughter rushed into school and immediately began telling the tale to the first friend she ran into.

I can't say enough good about this. The children are captivated and it provides great discussion topics, for example, after the SECOND time we listened to A Sense of Theft, I asked my daughters what they think the judge felt about the case against Zena. I, myself, had to run errands today and listened to the rest of the tales. The depth, the humor, the underlying celebration of the human spirit, all in such clever packages is something I will always enjoy bringing to my children.

I'm always on the lookout for a good cd or an audiobook to play in the car for the kids. The trick is finding something that your children will enjoy, and that will not compromise your sanity when you've heard it for the grazillionth time. This is one of those CD.
I enjoy listening to it, and especially my 2 favorites - "a sense of theft" ( a smart, humoristic Yiddish story ) and "Boat man's howling daughter" in which the the narrator howls so joyfully and enthusiastically it makes me want to to trap a gang of robbers and howl as well - Yeee Haaaaaaaaaaawwwww!!!!!

Each story is read by a different voice actor, and they do a good job of acting out the stories, but not overly so, if you know what I mean. You have stories from different parts of the world, so this would be a good way to introduce you child to different cultures.

Though some stories have some drama in them, they do not contain ANY violence or cruelty ( like some of the most popular fairy tales do - like snow white or red riding hood) and are very appropriate even for young children. I would recommend this to 4-12 yrs old.

It is always a pleasure to find folktales and other stories that not only entertain, but ennoble the listener/reader. I used one of the stores as a children's story in church and everyone, young and old loved it. Well done.

We bought this for my 3 yr old daughter, who we're trying to get into audiobooks in the car. A couple of these stories are duds, story-wise, but they're all well produced and well read.

Fantastically read by wonderful storytellers. Each story is a gem. Each storyteller makes the folk tale come alive.
Great
