    I'm a mom. I have drama in my life. I don't want books with the F-bomb, nor graphic violence. I read for fun and to bring my family together. I read for reducing stress levels. We have never had a television in our home and our children are now mid twenties to 19. We listen together and look for belly-wrenching laughter. So what is it like to live without a TV? Awesomely educational and inspirational. Each new book is a marvel.

    Story
    "Loved it!"

    Grandpa is in for a big surprise, war has been declared and he had no idea it was coming. A good story, a good moral theme of resolving differences yet being friendly while negotiations are ongoing. The solution was a great one because it involved communication and ideas from all parties.

    I had lots of laughs.

    Story
    "Great values and good kid-references"

    Loved the values this story subtly includes. It had my 9 year old hooked with interest, especially because of so many 9-year-old references (Star Wars, Risk, Hank Aaron etc). Definitely recommend for this age, my 7-year-old wasn't nearly as hooked.

    Story
    "All's fair in love and war"

    Listened to this book on several short car rides with my children (ages 6, 9, 15)....they enjoyed the story which was lighthearted and humorous. I found myself laughing out loud more than once. I would recommend for children as well as family listening time.
