I sometimes fail to read my seven year old boy’s nighttime stories. In fact, his endless questions of how come’s
and why’s have been answered half-heartedly by a distracted mommy.
practically all his questions and I have some audio books that the little boy can listen to when I am so exhausted I can’t
muster enough energy to even read.
audio books began two months ago via Tales4all’s Treebob Series by Declan
Harney. The series made up of:
Treebobs and the Dizzy Broomsticks,
Treebobs and the Runaway Cauldron,
Treebobs and the Giant Mole,
Treebobs Rescue Rotten Rena, and
Treebobs Save Christmas
elves called Treebobs and their fairy friends and how they always try to thwart
the evil plans of the forest’s resident witches named Badlot Barbara and Rotten
Treebobs and the Runaway Cauldron”. It is all about Rotten Rena being in big trouble.
Her wicked spells are not working and she has to win the great egg and
cauldron race otherwise, she will be kicked out of her cottage and the forest and a far more
evil witch will replace her.

without watching them. He kept inserting
questions like when was the television invented and why was it in black and white.

Like books, these audio books literally spark a child’s
imagination. Images of how the
characters and how the forest must have looked like purely depended on how the
child imagines them to be.
