Favorite Scary Stories of American Children
Grades K - 3Audiobook CD - 1991
Nearly every child begins requesting scary stories about age five or six, and they usually retain that interest at least until they leave elementary school. Adults are challenged to balance that interest with a sensivity for the readiness of children for truly scary stories. Enter storytellers Richard and Judy Young, armed with a wealth of scary stories collected from kids themselves. The first disc will appeal to most young children--those aged 5 to 8. Those aged about 8 to 11 will be drawn to the stories on the second disc. The book version of this work includes a key recommending the uses for each story in the 2-disc set. For those who value the distinctions of child development, the book-and-disc set offers a working unit to satisfy ages 5 to 11. The stories in this multicultural collection come from the ozark Mountains to the desert Southwest, from Japan and Hawaii, and from the Yiddish, laotian, and native American traditions.
