    Is there an illustrated reader (book) which accompanies the CD? We have the vol. 1 reader and it is beautiful.
    If vol. 2 does not have a reader, when will one be available?
    (pretty pretty please?) 😍

    When I searched the website for the 5 and up age group – this CD showed up in the listing. Because of this, I did not re-check the age range on this page. Please be careful of this CD. We love Well Trained Mind CDs because I don’t usually have to screen the content, but I was quite disturbed when I heard my 5 year old listening to this while I cooked breakfast. I shut it off immediately when I heard a piece about a young girl bound and tied to the foot of her bed – with a the but of a gun under her breast – and her writhing to the point where her hands were covered in sweat or blood.
