Product Description

From the Publisher

Following on from the success of 'Stories 4 Cool Kids'... a fascinating box of seven stories for children aged 5 - 10 years.
Diverting distraction for bedtimes and travelling!
Original stories developed to capture your child's imagination. This is a CD that will help flex your child's mind and amuse them time after time.

From the Author

"Tell us one of YOUR stories, Mum!" my children say. "Tell us the one where Christopher catches a burglar! Or when our car goes through a time tunnel to the Fire of London! Or the one where …" The teller of stories has a sacred trust – a power to entertain, to inspire, to share emotions, to educate. A good storyteller can calm a child's mind, can open a portal of imagination and possibilities, can educate in a picture format. Fairy tales and folk tales have, of course, a part to play in children's education. However, I have chosen to update these tales, to create stories that speak to the child of today in a way that the old stories can not now do, to provide stories that my children prefer.

I bought this cd for my granddaughter who is six years old. Her mother tells me that she loves it, and plays it again and again. It has also been enjoyed by her twin brother. It is highly recommended.

2.0 out of 5 stars Weak 1 Feb 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The stories are weak and lack substance and are not that well told either. Probably ok for very young children as the stories are very short and simple. For any children used to longer stories - with a real "story" to tell - this will be a poor substitute. My 6-year old was bored after hearing it just a couple of times. On the plus side - the stories are at least original - although maybe that's part of the reason for the poor quality!! It's cheap enough - but there are superior audio CD's out there which represent better value for money.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not enjoyable 1 April 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Both the children (8&6) and I thought this was disappointing. The stories were very poor and the reading style and voice were difficult to listen too. We actually turned it off half way through as we couldn't stand the voice anymore!

2.0 out of 5 stars Really annoying voice!
I can't BEAR the voice on this CD. My children like the stories well enough, but I can hardly listen to her. It's like she's too slow, or without the right expression. Read more
