COMPLETE  RECORDINGS

          All kids like stories, and I like kids -- so it's my custom to offer a few short children's selections in their entirety.  If bedtime stories remain a part of your own family rituals, perhaps you can take a night off!  Just click on the book cover to listen, or right-click and "Save Target As" to download.  Since I do record new stories from time to time, stop by every couple of months to see if anything's changed.  Or even easier, subscribe to my RSS feed(Subscribe to our RSS Feed!), and I'll let you know automatically when new recordings appear.

             Nathaniel Willy, Scared Silly, by Judith Mathews.  This is something of a bedtime story for the young ones.  But it's really pretty silly, and it might get them giggling.  Lessons in what not to do when a child becomes frightened at bedtime!  A terrific read-aloud book, well worth adding to your children's bookshelves.

Listen to Nathaniel Willy, Scared Silly!
Listen to Casey, The Utterly Impossible Horse!

      Casey, The Utterly Impossible Horse, by Anita Feagles.  An oldie but a goodie about a talking horse who really likes attention.  Fittingly, it's over an hour long!  You can download the whole thing (90+ MB) by clicking on the book cover, or you can download or listen chapter-by-chapter by clicking on the links below.
