Our Authors - Live!

Congratulations! You have landed on the single most exciting page of our entire Web site! There's nothing like closing your eyes and having someone read you a story. But when that someone is a young author, a lot like you, reading a story he or she wrote, it's extra special. To listen to the recorded stories, you will need the program RealPlayer, which you can download for free if you don't already have it. Happy listening!
