|Review by Cassy Cochrane, Child Magazine, 4 out of 5 stars
“Jenni Cargill-Strong combines song and story on this global compilation of mythological folk tales. Originally released in 1996, Cargill has re-mixed and re-released this award winning album for 2006. (Goldenheart, track 5, was voted one of the top 5 stories by America`s Storyteller Net in 2005.) But all the stories and songs here make for good listening. From Japan to Scotland, Australia to Indonesia, Jenni interactively relays tales of creatures and people. These are empowering fables that will capture children`s imagination and teach them one or two of life`s lessons along the way. Each of these folk tales is timed out perfectly, not too long or too short, so kids won`t lose interest or concentration, and the stories are interspersed with songs and music.
