The storytellers are entertaining and the content includes:
*Fairy tales by the Brothers Grimm or Hans Christian Anderson
*Folktales and legends from around the world.
*Beloved children’s tales such as the Just So stories by Rudyard Kipling
*Classics including A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, and an entire audio book of Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll.
