Barkface & Rootnose and Other Fables

Spring 2009 Storytelling
Ages: 4 - 9 yrs.
CD Price: $15.00
This CD offers a collection of several stories that will help young listeners shape their thinking regarding the treatment and perception of others. Three of Aesop's best-known fables remind listeners of several important thoughts: Fox and Crow (Better to be a clever crow than a pretty bird-and, Don't fall for idle flattery); Rabbit and Turtle (Slow and steady wins the race), and Squeak and Roar (Even the smallest creature can contribute). Taken from classic well-known fables, Kruk's adaptations are lively and entertaining; his careful marriage of music and word have strong appeal.
