I'm excited to share with you one of our family's favorite audio CD performers- Jim Weiss. Many of you may already be fans, but if you are not I encourage you to check out the vast collection of audio storytelling created by Greathall Productions. I was recently the recipient of two of these Lincoln CDs and I asked for permission to give one away.
How about a little preview? Enjoy this story from Abraham Lincoln and the Heart of America:
Of course Abraham Lincoln isn't the only offering Greathall Productions has for your family. There is a whole catalog available on his website. The good news is you can purchase a CD from the Greathall website for $13.45 or you can download the mp3 file from Peace Hill Press for $10.95. You'll find these recordings through other digital outlets as well, for example Rhapsody. We usually convert our CDs to mp3 files so we can put them on our kids' music players and not worry about the CD getting scratched. The best part about downloading the mp3 is you can listen right away!
Does your family enjoy listening to storytelling CDs? Jim is actually one of our family favorites. We have collected a small library over the years with title like Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea and Treasure Island. We keep them in the car for both long and short trips, we have a listening corner in our house, we've loaded many titles onto mp3 players and our kids listen as they fall asleep or as they do chores. They make great rainy day activities and save our sanity on sick days!
The movie Lincoln directed by Steven Speilberg releases next week. Enjoy this trailer of the movie and enter the contest to win your own copy of Jim Weiss's Abraham Lincoln and the Heart of America.
