Internationally acclaimed storyteller and folklorist Margaret Read MacDonald uses bedtime stories to end story hours on a calm note, and in this collection, she includes seven of her favorites from around the world. MacDonald clearly understands how to manage a young audience, her voice swoops and dips with the action in stories like "Snow Bunting's Lullaby" in which a father bird creates a lullaby for his children only to have it stolen by a raven. MacDonald also finds the right touches of humor and pathos, and young listeners will find themselves empathizing with the characters. This audiobook is a wonderful addition to any bedtime ritual.

Ugh, this is painful to listen to. The stories are good - buy the book and read them yourself. Please, please, don't subject your children to this randomly enunciated drunken ramble.
No. The kids enjoyed the stories but something is wrong with the sound balance. The music and sound effects were truly painful.
