Heroes, Horses, and Harvest Moons Illustrated Reader
Sit back and enjoy a good listen with master storyteller Jim Weiss. A true artist at both composition and vocals, Jim pumps life into classics and tales ranging from humorous to historical. We've received accolades from homeschoolers and reviewers across the nation, not to mention the numerous prestigious awards these products have garnered. After listening to several sample tapes, we heartily agree! Great for road trips, sick rooms, or just a quiet time of sharing together, put on your imagination and one of these CDs, and lose yourself for an hour or so in a great adventure or lighthearted tale.
I’m convinced that hearing and reading poetry instills a love of language early on. These audio CDs are carefully curated classic poetry that encourage tasting and savoring classic poetry. Jim Weiss as narrator expertly conveys the way poems were intended: orally, and with style. Additional explanation introduces each author. Each CD is a treasure. A great way to teach metaphor and enjoyment of the beautiful sounds of poetry. Heroes, Horses, and Harvest Moons can be combined with the reader of the same name to enhance study.
From Casey at the Bat to About Ben Adhem, from nursery rhymes to the Light Brigade, Rosetti to Longfellow, this poetry collection also provides information on the poets. The book is an exact transcript (beautifully illustrated) of the CD (or MP3 from welltrainedmind.com) edited and narrated by Jim Weiss. Introductory pages suggest ways to use these individually or in combination with your child. 53 pgs, pb. ~ Ruth
