A simple, lovely way to pass a little time together as a family

We found out about the book, Mr. Dog's Christmas at the Hollow Tree Inn, through a local bookstore, Charlie's Corner. I had never heard of it before. We bought the book, read it, and enjoyed it. Then I went searching for more information and was tickled to find out that I could listen to other stories about the Hollow Tree on podcasts. We've listened now to four of the stories. We like to listen to them while we drive to visit the grandparents house. They're nice little stories. The storyteller has a nice soothing voice. I especially like how he talks in a different voice for each of the characters. Mr. Crows voice is my favorite. It's interesting to listen to stories from the Victorian times. Living in San Francisco, with so much Victorian architecture, I've always wondered about the lives of the Victorians. These stories give us a little glimpse that's also very entertaining.
