Traveling storyteller Joel ben Izzy recounts the story of Hanukkah, as you've never heard it before, along with seven other tales to keep you laughing for all eight nights of the festival of lights. Through it all, Joel manages to capture both the warmth and humor of the holiday, with the stories woven together by the lilting music of The Kings of Klezmer.

Nationally syndicated radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh has long wanted to make American history come to life for the children of his listeners. In Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims, he created the character of a fearless middle-school history teacher named Rush Revere, who travels back in time and experiences American history as it happens, in adventures with exceptional Americans. In this second book in the series, Rush Revere is transported back to the people and events leading up to the American Revolution.

This, the only memoir published by a former Schindler's List child, perfectly captures the innocence of a small boy who goes through the unthinkable. Most notable is the lack of rancour, the lack of venom, and the abundance of dignity in Mr Leyson's telling. The Boy on the Wooden Box is a legacy of hope, a memoir unlike anything you've ever read.

We listened to the first chapter hoping it would improve, but it didn't. Sounds like it was made with thousands of small sound clips pieced together with missing words. Most disappointing purchase ever!

A new book in the religion/spirituality market informs listeners about the most enormous and longest competition the world has ever seen: the Christian Olympics, otherwise known as the "Christian race" that the Apostle Paul wrote about nearly 2,000 years ago.

I was given a copy of this tittle in exchange for my unbiased review. This is a wonderfully written book! It is an eye opener for a seasoned Christian and would be a great foundation to a new believer as well. This is a must have title for those looking to refresh their walk with the Father and gain new perspective on what we are supposed to be doing, what our purpose should be and what goals we should all strive to achieve. I would highly recommend every Christian give this a listen! I am sure I will listen again and again! The reading of this title is clear and fluid. I enjoyed listening!

  • Who Was Abraham Lincoln?

Born to a family of farmers, Lincoln stood out from an early age - literally! (He was six feet four inches tall.) As 16th President of the United States, he guided the nation through the Civil War and saw the abolition of slavery. But Lincoln was tragically shot one night at Ford's Theater - the first President to be assassinated.

We enjoyed "Who was Abraham Lincoln?" so much! It was very well received by my two special needs children. They learned so much through listening, the reader's tone and flow of speech was perfect for them!
