Abigail Callahan is the daughter of Robert Callahan

Abigail Callahan is the daughter of Robert Callahan. Not much is seen of Abigail, but from her father's dedication to her, she appears to have been a good daughter a dad would be willing to fight for, and she and her father were very close. As a child she might have had a wild streak due to wanting to participate in bot-fighting, as well as having an interest in technology. She is very brave and dedicated to her job and science, willing to go where no one has gone before.

You can take your child to museums, plays, shows and playgrounds. Those are all wonderful. But consider enriching their quet, internal world, their inner mind, with these stories.

I first heard Jay O'Callahan's stories when I borrowed his cassette tapes from the local library for my children, about 25 years ago. I have purchased the CDs as gifts for relatives and friends. And now I am purchasing them for my four year old granddaughter.

Our favorite stories on this CD are the "The Red Ball" and "Michael the Grasshopper". Characters and quotes from the stories often slip into our conversations. Wait until you meet all of the characters Michael encounters! Charming, funny, wise (or not-so wise) and human!

Jay O'Callahan is a well-known, master storyteller. His voice, characterizations and tales are intelligent, imaginative, positive and gentle. This CD is my favorite of all the ones I've heard. I also purchased "Litlle Heroes". The stories are perfect for car rides because they are so engaging. Children actually LISTEN to them! My granddaughter asks for them often.

Jay O'Callahan's stories are a must-have for anyone who spends time with a child.
I grew up listening to Michael and the Grasshopper on long car rides. I bought it for the nostalgia, as it had probably been 20 years since I last heard it. To my surprise it still holds up quite well. The stories are engrossing (and quite strange!) and Jay O'Callahan's voices are well done. To this day my 35 year old sister will occasionally remark, "It will act like a bubble if you treat it like a bubble." Better advice I could not give.
Love the CD and so does my 2yr old. I heard some of this as a joke on a long road trip in college, and I fell in love with the stories and never forgot them or the songs. Now that I have my own little guy, I had to buy, and I could not be happier. Get it, your life will be better for it.
Jay O'callahan tells a story like no one else! My own children were introduced to this nationally known storyteller at the National Storytelling Convention in Tennessee and have loved him ever since. Listening to stories is a great alternative to TV in that the child must imagine the characters and be able to keep up with the storyline only by listening. I use this and other story tapes as teaching tools in elementary and junior high Enlgish.
Fantastic stories.
Very good story teller but the stories lack substains that my children could relate too. They show no interest in listening to the DVD again.

Some of the stories were cute and funny

I just have to rate it okay
My sister gave me this tape for my children and we have enjoyed it so much. The first time it was funny, the second time we understood it more and laughed more, the third time we laughed more and now we immitate the characters and make jokes about the humorous perspectives. I would highly recommend this tape. My children (ages 5 and 7) love listening to this tape before bedtime (and I enjoy it too).
There's the story of Micheal the grasshopper with O'Callahan's great voice and the story of the Red Ball about a little girl and how she comes into her own in elementary school. There are also lots of other short stories each unique in their message and their style. The way O'Callahan tells the stories makes us want to listen - they sound exciting, but the stories themselves are so rich in imagination and imagery. I would highly recommend it.
Jay O'Callahan is a master storyteller. "Little Heroes" is some of his most engrossing material. Everyone should listen to Jay tell a story at least once in their life. I guarantee you will not be disappointed.
