"Once upon a time, on the Island of Meddybemps..."
On warm, sunny afternoons, you're likely to find children knocking on the door of Tippity Witchet's windmill house asking her to tell them a Beantime Story.
Tippity is always happy to see them. She invites the children to pick ripe jellybeans from her garden to eat while she tells her tales.
You should find a comfy place to sit and join them to hear some of their favorite stories. Tippity might even recite a poem or two.

Big News! All-time favorite Frogwart and the Tooth Fairies has new illustrations. This story first appeared in 1996, when computer screen sizes and resolutions were smaller. The original artwork looked pretty small on modern computers and tablets. Jerry reworked the art and the results are spectacular!

Please note: most of these stories do not include audio files. Please read them aloud to young children who cannot read for themselves. Watching you read aloud helps their language development more than listening to recorded stories.
We recently did create video versions of Two Brave Pixies and Three Pumpkin Pirates and uploaded them to YouTube to attract visitors to Earlier in 2010 we partnered with Reading Rhino to bring an interactive version of But That Wasn't The Best Part to the iPhone/iPod Touch and iPad with optional narration and sound effects.
Share these presentations with children, but keep reading to them as well. Listen to Susan's enthusiastic readings. Read stories to yourself before you read to children. Then read them with energy and enthusiasm. Your children will love it and they will want to become good readers, too.
