Grandpa Read’s Quiet Time Tales
Friday December 11, 2009see more by jen
If you are looking for a different sort of DVD to get your kids this Christmas, you should definitely check out Quiet Time Tales, a new, mellow form of entertainment for your little ones!
There are lots of times during the day when I literally want to pull my hair out because of all the NOISE. The bells and whistles on all the toys and busy TV shows sometimes drive me nuts! I have been known to walk around and turn everything OFF periodically so we can momentarily exist without noise pollution. That’s why I thought this DVD series was SO COOL.
They contacted me back before the OC Children’s Book Festival and sent me a copy to check out. I was so impressed I signed on with their affiliate program because I think your kids will love it too!
It is a collection of stories read by Grandpa Read, a cuddly-looking Mr. Rogers-esque sort of grandpa, sitting in a rocking chair. His voice is very mellow and soothing – a really great storyteller.
Although the DVD includes intermittent illustrations, it is really storytelling at is purest, thus forcing kids to use their little imaginations to picture the classic tale. This is unique in today’s world, and the part I loved the most.
It’s a great DVD to put in when your kids need a little “down time.” Shhhh….it’s Quiet Time….FINALLY!
