[subscription channel 832]Best Bedtime Stories podcasts — Children's stories for the young at heart (updated July 7, 2015; image by Giulia Canevari)
Hi, I'm Kayray and I love to read out loud. In this podcast, I'll read to you from some of my very favorite kids' books. I'd rather read than edit, so I don't edit my recordings; you get to hear the mistakes and everything (there aren't usually very many). Just pretend I'm right there reading you a bedtime story! :) The first book in this podcast is "The Saturdays" by Elizabeth Enright. It's about a New York family in the 1940s. I love this book with all my heart and hope you do too! Next is "Absolute Zero" by Helen Cresswell, a hilarious story about an eccentric English family in 1970s England. This book is the 2nd book in the Bagthorpe Saga. I hope you'll read them all. (These recordings were made in 2002 or so, and the sound quality is much lower than my usual standard. Forgive me!) Next is "Half Magic" by Edward Eager. He wrote several more "Magic" books starring the same children (and their descendants) so I hope, if you enjoy this book, you'll track down some of the others! And now we're starting "The Apple Stone" by Nicholas Stuart Gray. I love this book and I'm annoyed that it's out of print!
A podcast of public-domain audio books for kids, read by Kara Shallenberg. New chapters will appear on Mondays. We've finished The Road to Oz, A Little Princess, The Secret Garden, Heidi, Our Island Story, an anthology of poetry for children, a children's history of the Middle Ages, More William, This Country of Ours Part 1, Helen's Babies, and The Book of Art for Young People, and When Mother Lets Us Cook. Next we had The Adventures of Sally, by P. G. Wodehouse and then The Story of Mankind -- an excellent history book for kids, read as a duet with my friend Michelle Crandall, and then one of my all-time favorite books in the whole wide world: The Swiss Family Robinson. Then we had Part 2 of "This Country of Ours", Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Part 3 of "This Country of Ours", and then "Through the Looking-Glass". Oh, and then the rest of Part 3 of This Country of Ours... which I somehow forgot to post earlier :) Next is Grammar-Land, which I just LOVED recording! Enjoy!

Hello, This is Richard, and I’m here with a story about somebody we haven’t heard from for a while, Theo, the crime-fighting monkey. His first story, long, long, ago was call the Monkey who loved Chocolate. Since then he’s escaped from the zoo and become an animal who stands-up for for justice. But he has...

The summer is racing along at a rabbit's pace, so it's a good time to bring you "The Tortoise and the Hare", popularized by the Greek slave Aesop, who told a great many fabulous fables. In later centuries, many similar stories sprang up in many cultures around the world. This is a sort of sneak preview of the story for our audiences, as next summer we'll be unveiling a stage version of the tale that will incorporate some of the elements we've put into this podcast. By the way, do you recognize the references to other stories and songs we sneak into this story? (If you don't see the answers below.) We come to you from a sizzling Hot Springs, Arkansas, where we're delighted to be performing at the library once again. It's a pretty busy month, but since we have much more free time this month than we will have next month, we've been trying to play tourist while we can. We have seen dinosaur footprints in New Mexico, explored a cave and hiking trail near a waterfall in Oklahoma, and went swimming...

It's just like our last story, only very different. "The Story Spirits", from Korea, examines the traditional theme of an individual who wants to keep stories all for himself—and thereby demonstrates how important it is to share them with everyone. We come to you from Santa Fe, rich in art, history and Native American culture. We've also spent time recently in Albuquerque, and at the Grand Canyon. We took a train ride there from Williams, AZ (the last town on the old Route 66 to be bypassed by the new freeway, Interstate 40), an experience which included a theatrical encounter with some Wild West hombres. We also spent a couple of days hiking and exploring t Bandelier National Monument, an archaeological site where you can view the remnants of cliff dwellings once occupied by the Anansazi for centuries. What stories they must have had to tell! Happy (Santa Fe and other) trails to you. And happy listening. Dennis (Young Jin-Sun, Adult Jin-Sun, Spirit 1, Spirit 3, Spirit 5, Spirit 7) and...

The classic tale of the Velveteen Rabbit. Before Woody and Buzz of Toy Story, there was a wise old Skin Horse and a Rabbit that just wanted to be loved…and to become real. Animals, Scarlet Fever, Fairies, this story has it all. The post #17: The Velveteen Rabbit appeared first on Stories Podcast.
Anansi and the Story Box is a tale from Ghana in Africa, about the legendary spider-man hero of the Ashanti tribe, and how he brought stories to the world. It bears certain similarities to the Greek myths of Pandora and Prometheus, and includes a plot point similar to The Tar Baby, which made its way from Africa to America. We come to you from Reno, NV, where we are putting together our new show that will premiere this summer. We recently returned to our roots in the San Francisco Bay Area, where we hiked a trail at Land's End, near The Golden Gate. We also took a ride on the Niles Canyon Railway, a vintage train line that runs between the Bay Area towns of Sunol and Fremont. The Fremont station is located in an area known as Niles, which was the early home of silent movie-making before it was relocated to Hollywood. We hope you will enjoy this story, and the great lengths to which our resident arachnid went to get it. Happy Listening,Dennis (Minor God, Nyame, Python, Lion, Fairy) and Kimberly...
