Album Notes
"If you love rivers, you'll love River Tales! -- American Rivers newsletter, Spring 1996

"Stephen DiLauro has achieved the sought-after but rare quality of creating original tales that sound ages old" -- Paul Shackman, Booklist, American Library Association, 9/15/96

"The telling of these tales is as fresh and imaginative as the stories themselves. DiLauro has a relaxed, easy-to-listen-to style." -- AudioFile, September 1996

"This is a delightful recording that introduces us to a variety of interesting characters who make us laugh and shudder a bit." -- SingOut, The Folk Song Magazine, Aug/Sep/Oct '96

“ . . . mesmerizes right from the start . . . a blend of spookiness and humor that will have listeners on the edge of their seats . . . timeless . . . a marvelous tapestry of sound”
Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Amusing stories . . . will have listeners reciting along . . . Entertaining . . . useful for introducing folk tales”
School Library Journal

“Rivers of fun for kids . . . Mark Twain revisited!”
Big Apple Parents Paper

“. . . entertaining, well-told tales . . . witty and delightful . . . entirely worthwhile”
Philadelphia Inquirer

The American Library Association's Booklist chose River Tales as one of the ten best recordings of the year.
River Tales was first broadcast on WBAI-FM, community radio in New York City. David D. Wright, an award-winning sound designer, was the producer. Subsequently, the River Tales series found a listening audience on nearly 200 public radio stations throughout the English-speaking world.

"All stories, first broadcast on "Shelf Life" on WBAI-FM, New York City, introduce listeners to two dark spirits who prowl Eastern river valleys playing tricks--Boogerberry Man and Twitchy Boy. There are also stories about an ancient, pond-dwelling giant sea worm and the Calicoon Twins, who snare the Twitchy Boy and engineer a few tricks of their own. The telling of these tales is as fresh and imaginative as the stories themselves. DiLauro has a relaxed, easy-to-listen-to style. All of the cast members give polished performances; each character sparkles with personality. Engaging listening for the whole familyÐwith a gentle conservation message." AudioFile magazine

This download contains approximately 3 hours of recorded material. All 3 CDs are included for the one price. If you have children, and you take road trips, you want these stories. They will engage your kids' minds and stimulate their imaginations again and again.

Thank you for your interest in River Tales. Enjoy!
