New Contest from "The Dirty Shirt"

Tell Me A Story Review And Giveaway

January 5, 2009

Being a homeschooler, I am always excited to discover new and exciting way to teach my children. I found a great way to introduce them to folktales from around the world through Amy Friedman. Tell Me A Story: Timeless Folktales from Around the World and Tell Me A Story 2: Animal Magic have both won Parents’ Choice Silver Honors Awards and National Association of Parenting Publications Gold Medals as well as rave reviews. Their third release, Tell Me A Story 3: Women of Wonder, will be released this spring.

Both of these CDs are wonderful and such a great way to introduce a different culture into your children’s reading/storytelling. My children loved all the new stories that they heard, yes, even the 16 year old who said he wouldn’t enjoyed them. And on a recent run to the grocery store I popped it in for the kids to listen to and we had to stay in the car until it was over. I am very pleased how my kids have taken to the stories on these CDs. I highly recommend them to all homeschooling parents as a wonderful way to introduce a world of stories to your kids. And I have some good news! Amy Friedman has offered a reader of The Dirty Shirt a set of both of these great CDs. Rules are below:
