Wonderful New Podcast
I was surfing itunes for the perfect bedtime, travel and otherwise stories for my 13-month old and I came across this new podcast. I subscribed instantly and was pleasantly surprized to hear these warm wonderful stories. I wanted to curl up and listen myself. Storyteller Alan has a very comforting voice and I love the fact that the podcast isn't littered with ads-at all. Thank you, Alan, for sharing your time and efforts to make this glowing podcast. We hope to hear more- Thank you!
A Cut Above
This podcast is really a cut above. The original stories are beautifully crafted and contain positive values-based messages. The stories are entertaining and use advanced vocabulary so the children listening will not feel that they are being "talked down" to.
Great fun for the whole family
This podcast is so fun to listen to. It is well produced and the stories are great. This should be in your iPod to listen to with your kids (or even on your own). I hope this podcast keeps going and going. :0)
