Classic children's stories and more

Classic stories with princesses and princes, frogs and fortunes. The speakers did a great job, were easy to understand and portrayed real emotion, bringing the stories to life. Good choice for kids.

Classic stories with outdated messages

The readers were delightful and engaging. I enjoyed it a lot. I just do not like how good looks make couples happy in these tales.
