WHY THE SEA IS SALTY – Many countries have their own unique versions of this classic wonder story. Ever wonder why the ocean is so salty? Well, it might be because of this story. Or maybe not. Enjoy this fun dramatization of the classic tale from "Let's Pretend" originally broadcast in 1942!

WHY THE SEA IS SALTY


THE MYSTERIOUS PIRATE PIT - Almost 200 years ago, three boys found an odd tree and a shallow round pit on deserted Oak Island in Nova Scotia and realized that they may have actually stumbled across buried pirate treasure. But when they started to dig… they were amazed and mystified at what they found. This is an amazing TRUE story about one of the most mysterious and fascinating puzzles ever devised.

Brother & Sister + Pinocchio

More great "Living Books for the Ears" for you as we continue our Audio Adventure Week postings! (Psstt… If you like these stories and want more, be sure to click here!)

BROTHER AND SISTER – Let's Pretend specialized in dramatizing classic fairy and folk tales for younger listeners. We think their version of the eastern European fairy tale "Brother and Sister" (included in Grimm's Fairy Tales) is one of their best! Give it a listen and see if you think so too!

BROTHER AND SISTER

PINOCCHIO – A delightful audio version of Collodi’s classic story, “Pinocchio”, starring none other than Mel Blanc (voice of Bugs Bunny and countless other cartoon characters). This is a fast, fun and highly entertaining version of the story, as originally broadcast on the program “Family Theatre” back in 1951. Wonderful stuff!

We continue our Audio Adventure Week! Strengthen those listening skills and tune in these great classic stories! (Psstt… If you like these stories and want more, be sure to click here!)

FATHER KNOWS BEST "Watching the Dog" – Chaos comes to the Anderson household in the form of a mischeivous little dog that has the whole family in an uproar in this great episode of the classic radio sitcom from 1952!

FATHER KNOWS BEST: WALKING THE DOG

 

JACK AND THE BEANSTALK / PUSS IN BOOTS – Next, we have TWO great Grimm's fairy tales, told by none other than The Great Gildersleeve (Harold Peary). These are warm and engaging retellings of these classic stories, but are faithful to the originals — so be warned, the giant and the ogre don't make it out of the stories alive. And for those of you who are concerned about such things, there are no witches in these stories. These classic stories were originally released in a 78rpm children's album in 1947.
