Publisher's Summary

Open the Door is a collection of four stories and three songs of traditional Celtic origin told and sung by Jennifer Armstrong. Her powerful performances include a startling rendition of W. B. Yeats' "The Lake Isle of Innisfree", the title song "Open the Door", and a melding of African and Scottish tales in "The Marriage Basket". Be you child or adult, listening for yourself or with a partner, Open The Door will lead you on an exploration of love for family, one's self, and the natural world.
