A Few Words From Heather: "Since ancient times people in cultures throughout the world have gathered around the hearth at home to share stories. Storytelling was a way to pass on values, to entertain, and to create a sense of community heritage. Adventure tales, stories of things that happened long ago, family stories, fantasies, folktales and fables, abounded as people shared time and words together. In a busy modern world it is refreshing to the spirit to rekindle the hearth fires with an old tale. I invite you to listen to these stories and sing along or retell them in your own way. Perhaps they will inspire some homespun tales around the dinner table or at bedtime. Parents' own personal life stories are treasures that can be passed down as invisible yet lasting gifts to children. The simple act of wholeheartedly telling about an old memory or describing what just happened today to an interested listener is both ancient and joyous. One of the most generous gifts we can give is the time we take to speak and listen to each other. Enjoy!"
ABOUT HEATHER: Heather Forest is a minstrel with a voice that can soothe and soar as she weaves a musical spell with the magic of words. Her style of storytelling blends original music, guitar, poetry, prose and the sung and spoken word. With vividly crafted language, evocative facial expression, and graceful gesture she creates powerful images in the minds of her listeners. She has toured her repertoire of world folktales for the past twenty years to theatres, major storytelling festivals, and conferences throughout the United States. Heather is also the author of several children's books. Her first book, "The Baker's Dozen...A Colonial American Tale", won an American Institute for Graphic Arts Award and was selected by the Children's Literature Center of the Library of Congress to be part of their traveling book exhibit. Another book, "The Woman Who Flummoxed The Fairies...An Old Tale From Scotland" was chosen as a Pick Of The Lists by The American Booksellers Associations.
Heather lives with her husband and two children on Fox Hollow Farm in New York State.

One of the best story/song CDs!
My kids (4 and 6 years old) cannot get enough of this CD. Ms Forest's versions of "Stone Soup" and "The Fisherman and the Magic Fish" - both old stories - are better than any others we've heard. We listen to it (and sing along) frequently and even I never tire of it. This would make a wonderful gift for any child who loves stories.
