    "You know, all this talk we are talking? It's like the sunshine and the rain. It's present or not, but when it is present it soaks and warms and disappears. Nevertheless, the nourishing effect of it lasts and shows continually."

Great

I looked for ages for a podcast that would have good ratings and was suitable for children ( I'm around the age of a child and tween) and I saw this podcast. I decided to listen to the 1st story and it was amazing and I couldn't wait for the next one to listen to. I the way it is narrated the story and music is great 10/10. I bet I will listen to this podcast every night. I know it is this podcasts job to put me to sleep and get it is was to good to sleep on the stories are the best part. Sorry, I just am obsessed with this podcast. I will say this one last time: this story, narration and music, suitable for children 100,000,000 OUT OF 10. I'm getting tired from just writing this because of the podcast.

amazing stories? or NO? ,

ZZzzz

It feels like I'm sleeping or dreaming when I listen, and these are not like any I've listened to before. Just a normal tale that doesn't have anything to do with lessons or folktales. It makes me feel emotions and feelings at the same time and I sometimes wonder if they are enchanted! Love the podcast, and please make those fantastic tales come more often!
