Other Comments About This Show

Loved all three stories, morality lessons, nostalgic, and educational ... I will never destroy another spider web at the Detroit Zoo! : ) Barbara's voice is comforting and calming. Loved the puppets and props, but just watching Barb turn the pages and show the pictures lowered the blood pressure, and took me back to when I was a young child, sitting in a circle on the floor, with other kindergarteners, while the teacher read us "The Three Billy Goats Gruff," and then we acted out the story by climbing on chair, table, chair to cross the bridge where the troll sat beneath the bridge, waiting for the goats to cross to the meadow and provide his dinner. Spoiler alert: It did not end well for the troll! I am one of those "young at heart," and you are an inspiration to others to read aloud to young and old, and share your gifts and talents with others ... we all have them, we just need to put them to use. Thank you, Barb!
