Grandpa Read's Quiet Time Tales

Product Review Sunday

We have been discussing the importance of reading aloud to children. In fact, the Autumn issue of Be the Best Nanny Newsletter explains that even if you don't like reading yourself, it's still important to read aloud to children each and every day. To see the issue you can purchase it here.

But, there are times I just can't read to the kids. That's why I am thrilled that Yes, Dear Entertainment sent me samples of Grandpa Reads Quiet Time Tales  recently and I can highly recommend these adorable videos to you. This are guilt-free DVDs when you need a way to distract children and calm them down.

My employers have a DVD player in their car. Obviously I cannot read to my charges while I'm driving but "Grandpa" can when I play these videos in the car. Using these DVDs while I'm shuttling kids to activities keeps them silent and well behaved as they listen to "Grandpa," (played by actor Gary Sturm), read all the classics stories and fairy tales all kids (and adults) love.

Grandpa Read's Quiet Time Tales is a series of one- hour DVDs highly recommended for children ages two- to eight-years-old. In each volume Grandpa reads five classic children's stories aloud accompanied by original illustrations commissioned for the project. Each DVD also has an original song, with all 13 songs featured on a Quiet Time Tales music CD.

There are 60 classic childhood stories and fairy tales in the entire collection including: The Three Bears, Puss in Boots, Jack and the Beanstalk, Robin Hood, Rapunzel, Little Red Riding Hood, Sleeping Beauty, The Little Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe, The Ugly Duckling, Thumbelina, Rumplestiltskin, The Velveteen Rabbit, Beauty and the Beast, The Three Little Pigs, The Princess and the Pea, The Emperor's New Clothes, and many more.

This series, was conceived in the spirit of "Mister Rogers" and "Reading Rainbow" to create calming and soothing children's entertainment which fires childrens' imaginations and inspires a love of stories and story-telling.
