Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Classics of many lands-wisdom from China and Japan, an African romance and wildly funny Native American, Arabian and Spanish tales-show that human beings are all related.

Review

Most folktales spin a running tale of human foibles...these tales are no exception...use it as a part of cultural geography lessons. --Eclectic Homeshool

Format: Audio CD
Jim Weiss is one of my favorite storytellers (my family loves Odds Bodkin, too). Jim is great at changing his voice to become different characters. This collection was an all-time family favorite which I have also purchased for my school. Even though we listened to it in the car several years ago with our now-grown children, everyone in the family still remembers these stories. My daughter used to like us to quiz her on all the different Jim Weiss stories! Lines from them have become "inside jokes" that we still refer to! Kids can learn a great deal, improve their vocabulary, but MOST of all they can have a lot of fun (and grown ups can, too)!!!

These are the best story CD's for long car rides when you don't want the kids watching mindless videos! My husband and I also love to listen to them, and the car is QUIET!

This CD from Jim Weiss, a tremendous story teller, remains my children's favorite. We actually bought THIS CD for a gift for the kids my daughter baby-sits because she had shared our CD with them and they loved it, too. My kids are in the their teens and twenties, but still love to laugh about the stories and repeat lines from them. We usually listened to Jim Weiss CD's on long car trips. Great entertainment for the family.

Purchased several of these for a vacation car ride. The kids loved listening to the stories versus watching movies the whole time. Our 12 year old and 6 year olds enjoyed them.

We love all the Jim Weiss CD's!Both my four year old, my husband and I get wrapped up in them and find ourselves sitting in the car to finish a story:)
