Stories for Growing Girls
Audio CD (55 min.) Audience: children from 5 to 12
On her debut CD, Stéphanie Bénéteau tells five stories about resourceful and courageous heroines from around the world. The Name of the Tree (a Bantu tale), The Wood Maiden (Eastern Europe), The Little Woman Who Laughed (Japan), The Invisible Boy (Native American/Mic Mac), and The King's Ring (Africa): beautifully narrated along some original music and sound effects, all these stories tell the engaging tales of unusual girls and courageous women. In 2007, Dreaming Tall: Stories for Growing Girls was awarded the Parents' Choice Gold Award in the storytelling category.
