A TREASURY OF WISDOM True Stories of Hope and Inspiration

by | Read by Jim Weiss

Children Ages 8+ • 1.25 hrs. • Audio Program • © 2007

Jim Weiss's collection of stories showcases wisdom--the art of knowing facts and using those facts to achieve a worthwhile goal--and historical figures whose lives provide hope and inspiration to a contemporary audience. Weiss circles the globe and includes various historical periods. From Japan comes an admonishment to be like an empty teacup. In sixteenth-century Italy, artists Michelangelo and Raphael demonstrate the rewards of speaking the truth. From England comes the moving story of author Beatrix Potter. Weiss takes pleasure in sharing these stories with a friendly and conversational delivery. He speaks clearly, and both slows and modulates his voice to emphasize specific moments. Weiss's tales treat listeners to a banquet of food for thought. A.R. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 08]
