What the Varchar?
My kids love story time and I love introducing them to great stories that teach a lesson. I was fortunate to get the opportunity to review Naptime Nanny- a set of narrated fairy tales in CD format. The idea is that kids can listen to them during quiet time at home or at school. So, when the time was right, I had the kids grab their blankeys and get cozy in the living room. At first, there was a little grumble when I explained that we were not watching a show but going to listen to stories. Once the narration began, they actually moved closer to the speakers and listened very closely. I was impressed. The story teller sounded just like a teacher but with a touch more enthusiasm and there were sound bits here and there to add to the stories. After about 15 minutes, my three year old was sleeping but my five year old actually brought his coloring supplies over and was drawing pictures of what he was hearing. At one point he asked "Mom, how do I draw a troll and a goat?" That made me smile! Overall, I love the concept and am happy with the quality of the story telling. My kids were the true judges in this case and they certainly enjoyed their quiet time with Naptime Nanny.
This unique collection comes in three volumes. Volumes one and two contain your classic fairy tales like Goldilocks, Three Billy Goats Gruff, and the Boy Who Cried Wolf. The last volume is their Christmas Edition. Each CD retails for $15 plus shipping and handling and can be purchased at www.NaptimeNanny.com. The stories can also be downloaded in mp3 format on their site if you prefer.
