    Why would this be for ages 9 and up? I have a 7 year old I would like to include but am hesitant to purchase due to the 9+ age recommendation.

    • The age-ranges are just our best estimates. There’s nothing really objectionable in this: profanity, sexual content, details about violence, etc. A 7-year-old might not understand all the content but would be fine to listen to it.

    I would love to purchase this but I find your news letter and links frustrating and so full of colors I couldn’t find where to buy?? We have loved you through all our childrens upbringing and way beyond. Please give us a hint. Thank you, Anne Greene
