Grateful for Becky’s audiobook of Grandmother Moon!

I just finished listening to Grandmother Moon and Other Mother Stories: GrandmotherMoon1Book One on my phone. It is the audiobook by Becky Parker Geist of Pro Audio Voices. Becky is not only a business partner but a friend. Listening to the Grandmother Moon audio book on my iPhone I was flooded with gratitude. Becky has done such a beautiful job with all the character voices, and music and sound effects. It really makes the stories fun to listen to, and I really like having them on my phone. There is an audio sample at Becky’s website. The stories are for children 4 and up.

This whole project has been a labor of love with the focus on having fun creating stories that celebrate mothers and children. Becky and I hold a vision that these stories will contribute to that special bonding time that mothers and children share, full of warm hugs and giggles.

Here’s a little about the stories on Book One:

Grandmother Moon and Other Mother Stories: Book One offers traditional and new original folktales that explore the love, joy and challenges between mothers and children. Perfect for mothers and children to read aloud, or you can listen to the audiobook by Becky Parker.

“Epaminondas,” a traditional folktale told to Becky Parker Geist by her mother, is about a boy who tries so hard to please his mother, but can’t seem to get it right. “Grandmother Moon and the Homeless Child” is a touching story about searching for home. A little blue bird and a rock child play major roles in “Abuela and the Rock People.” And Louisa-May’s mischievous little sister Angel causes trouble in “Mama, Angel and the Tree Dragon.” In “Strawberry Moon,” Mother Moon helps her daughter express herself colorfully.

“The stories are clear, dramatic, inviting and delicious. I love them. This is marvelous work! Bravo!” — Jay O’Callahan, Storyteller. National Endowment of the Arts recipient. Lifetime Achievement Award National Storytelling Network, Commissioned by NASA to create and perform a story in honor of NASA’s fiftieth anniversary

“A delightful collection of lovingly told and affirming stories filled with timeless magical transformations and a traditional humorous folktale — all addressing the mother-child relationship.” — Ruth Stotter, Past Chairman, American Folklore Society Aesop Committee; Former Director, Dominican University (California) Certificate-in-Storytelling Program

  1. Hello Vlatka, just purchased the book on my Kindle. I tried to purchase the audio originally, the sample sounded great but I was not able to purchase it due to technical problems with the credit card processing. But having it on my Kindle will give me the opportunity to read it to my kids tonight. Thank you!

      1. I’ll return to the audio in the near futre, when the kids are ready for their second second round since they like stories to be read more than once.
