Best Loved Stories in Song & Dance - CD

by Jim Weiss


Quick Overview

Any school or public library with an audience for quality audiocassettes will want to consider Jim Weiss's Best Loved Stories in Song and Dance.


The recording includes three well known fairy tales: The Twelve Dancing Princesses by Grimm, The Sleeping Beauty by Perrault, and Snow White and Rose Red by Grimm. In addition to Weiss's fine storytelling skills and the outstanding audio quality, there is the added bonus of fairy tales presented in their expanded versions, not the brief, bare-bones tales that have been condensed for youngsters. At close to 20 minutes per story, listeners are provided with a rich vocabulary and several original songs to heighten the period mood of these tales. Weiss uses his expressive voice like a well-tuned musical instrument; it rises and falls, changes mood, and builds the scene in listeners' minds. He is able to create numerous characters within the stories, quietly involve youngsters with the complex storyline, and build to a climax without resorting to excessive background music or other audio effects. Some teachers will find this a useful tool for introducing the richness of these stories, but most students and teachers will listen to this recording again and again merely for the pleasure of hearing an award-winning storyteller recreating these classic tales.0.5 x 5.8 x 5 inches
