    5 out of 5 A seed that sprouted

    Both of my children (and I) listened to many of Jim’s stories over the years. I think we had over 30 cd’s before they left for college. The storytelling form is more powerful and different than any other learning device I’ve yet to discover. My children are both grown up now, and are successful in life. Jim’s stories brought our minds alive and sparked the imagination; my kids absorbed the information like a sponge and went on dreaming and thinking long after the recording had ended. Their teachers were always astounded by the breadth of information they had been exposed to and the foundation that was laid by Jim’s stories made their minds fertile and ready to learn everything else they wanted to learn. I liken listening to Jim’s stories to taking a vitamin for learning and excitement and curiosity for life that you could not get in many more places these days.

    Listening to Jim’s stories remains among our fondest shared memories. Now I am sharing them with the young families I get to know along the way. I cannot think of a greater gift.

    Thank you so much Jim.

  2. 5 out of 5 Great for most ages!

    Our daughters have listened to this and others from Jim since they were 4 or 5 years old, and are still listening as teenagers. They are very engaging and have been great for our family for years of bedtime and car listening. As busy working parents we appreciate a day or two off from reading to the kids at night, and they appreciate hearing fun stories from a “new” and different voice. Both of our children have an improved vocabulary and understanding of history thanks to Jim’s recordings.
