Story Harbour Vol 1 Review & Giveaway

Story Harbour vol. 1 is the inaugural collection of world tales for all ages performed by Zette Harbour. Stories travel the world and we can enjoy them when they visit our corner of it. Hear about Anansi, the half-spider, half-man who covets the stories of the sky god. Visit the British Isles and learn a thing or two. A poignant tale from Japan speaks to us all. From the deep reaches of the ancient city of Jerusalem, learn the meaning of poverty and of wisdom. Finally, test your cleverness against the innkeeper's daughter.

Track 1: Anansi & Stories

Track 2:Master Of All Masters

Track 3:The Little Old Woman Who Lived In A Vinegar Bottle

Track 4:The Crane Wife

Track 5:The Sound Of The Money

Track 6:The Innkeeper's Clever Daughter

50 mins - ages 4 - adult

The first thing that struck me about this CD is the beautiful music leading in. It's soothing, calm and sets the tone for the stories about to come. Storytelling is performed by Zette Harbour,  who has a rich, clear voice. She does an excellent job of portraying different voices as different characters talk.

The six stories on this CD will have different purposes for different age groups. Younger children will find the stories fascinating and take them at face value. Older listeners will find valuable morals entwined in each folk story.

This CD has won a Parents' Choice award and I can see why. Children, as well as adults, can listen to the stories and learn while enjoying themselves. This is definitely something that could be played over and over in my house without driving me to distraction. Educational, entertaining and easy to listen to, The Story Harbour Vol 1 is hours of entertainment not to be missed by anyone of any age!

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
