This fall, the children’s story experts at PJ Library expand their engaging offerings for children with the podcast “Have I Got a Story for You!”. Launched in October, the podcast lifts classic Jewish folk tales from the page, gives them a modern twist and brings them to sparkling life for families seeking an entertaining, enriching diversion from digital life.
Podcast stories currently available on “Have I Got a Story for You!” includes:
“Two Sisters,” about a pair of siblings who are best friends, alike in every way – except that one has really bad allergies
“The Truth About Cats and Dogs” which follows the friendship between the first of their species in the time of Adam and Eve, based on an old story from the Middle Ages
“Moon Station One,” which takes place 70 years in the future on a crowded moon base, a story which ultimately teaches children about gratitude
“Whisker of Magic,” about two mischievous mouse sisters and “Yitzi the Trusty Tractor,” following the adventures of a tractor who takes off on Shabbat.
Rena’s Restaurant Reviews
