    Story

    I hadn't read these stories before hearing the audiobook, so I discovered how family friendly and entertaining they are while listening to Ms. Boutilier's narration. This audiobook is capable of transporting me and my family to a simpler time, and precious time in the South. The short stories are all written by different authors, but Ms. Boutilier's narration expertly connects them through her southern cadence and character driven reading. Because of her talent with voices, the listener is able to vividly imagine each story. She brings so much to the table that for me and my family, she makes this unabridged audiobook a must have for long trips and short ones. It even has influenced my family to become closer to books (rather than tv and video games) and therefore closer to one another through the stories we now share. I am so happy that we started listening to it. The fact that it is over 7 hours and captivating helps us get to our own grandma's porch happy. :)
    The tradition of oral storytelling is alive and well thanks to the authors and to Ms. Boutilier. Thanks! We can't wait to see what she narrates next!
