A children’s picture book was released some time ago and was so well received that it has now been made into an audiobook. It is for ages three to eight. Most people listen to audiobooks for entertainment, but audiobooks have come a long ways. We can now share a children’s story with our child. When a narrator reads a book, it’s easy to picture the characters interacting with one another, bringing the story to life as your child listens to the dynamics of the narrator. They can easily hear the anxiety or humor in the person’s voice.
Red Mountain Shadows Publishing presents Bedtime Stories by Author Linda Weaver Clarke. With narrator, Heidi Allred, she draws your child in and helps him or her feel part of the adventure.
“It is a sweet book which I think my grandkids would enjoy. It is written for younger children and shows the trust between mother and child.” –Sonja Nishimoto, Sunnie Reviews
Bedtime Stories: In each of these stories, a mother helps her little girl understand her fears at night. Shadows In My Room: Kayla sees shadows in her room that disturb her. Her mother answers all her questions about each shadow that she points to, and helps her to calm down and go to sleep. What’s That Noise: Amber hears noises that disturb her such as the wind and thunder. Her mother teaches Amber to use her imagination by turning something fearful into something fun. I’m Not Sleepy: Cason finds every way possible to get out of going to bed such as needing a drink of water or having his mother read a book to him. Each time, he tells her that he isn’t sleepy.
Inishowen Cailín, a reviewer from Ireland, wrote:
“This is a lovely book for your child to listen to at night especially if they are in any way anxious at bedtime. The stories talk through some of the most common fears little children have; scary shadows and noises, and explains them away in a cute and fun way. I also loved how the mother sang a little hymn to lull the child to sleep at the end of each story, as a signal that it was time to sleep. I can imagine that with repeated listening a child would naturally pick up on this cue as well.”
Was it difficult to listen to this audiobook without a picture book? Donna Cochran says:
“Not having the book to look at the pictures, I wasn’t sure about how much I would like it. But I’m happy to say that I was impressed! With the author’s words and the voices of the narrator, I didn’t need the book. The words flowed with emotion and fun. I look forward to more from Linda Weaver Clarke and Heidi Allred.”
