    The quality of the Jim Weiss' cd's are excellent and the stories are entertaining. The only problem my family had with the cd's was the occasional use of slang words like "gee", "dangit", "darn", "heck", "shucks" (true meanings of these words can be found on Wikipedia under "Minced oath"). If you are not bothered by your children hearing or using that type of slang, then you will be very happy with your purchase. If you are not happy with that use of language, then you may want to consider purchasing something else or be prepared to screen the stories.

    Tall Tales are part of our country's heritage and they're truly enjoyable stories for children. Jim Weiss recorded four stories on this CD: Paul Bunyan, Johnny Appleseed, Pecos Bill, and The Fastest Draw in the West.

    Before he begins telling the stories, he explains what a tall tale is and how they began. As a mom, I loved the stories because they were entertaining. As a homeschooling mom, I loved that Mr. Weiss gives an introduction that upper elementary children will understand. The introduction will help them fit these stories into the framework that they're minds are developing about the history of our country.

    These stories are not radio theater. They are audio books. But, they are also more than "just" audiobooks. Weiss does a wonderful job of speaking with varied inflection and tones. It's easy to tell when he's speaking for different characters. My children are 3, 5, and 7 years old. I don't know that my 3 year old fully understands the stories, but he does enjoy them. My 5 and 7 year olds do understand the stories.

    On Weiss' website, Greathall Productions, there is a listing of all of the storytelling recordings that is divided by age. The Tall Tales CD is listed for children 5 and older. I agree with that rating. But, younger children will still enjoy listening along.

    Honestly, I was surprised and disappointed that I couldn't find a lot of audio books at our local library that I felt were appropriate and educational for my family. But, I have been so encouraged to find Jim Weiss' recordings. There are so many stories I want my children to hear and often we don't have enough time during our school day to read them aloud or enjoy them. Listening in the car is one way my children get the chance to still enjoy these stories!

    Please note that I received a complimentary copy of American Tall Tales from Greathall Productions for review.
