The Story Ship Podcast Voyage 24 - ”The Golden Tears of Great Bear”
The Story Ship brings you to the forest for the tale of an incredible battle. Warning! This story is not for little little ones. Grade school is fine but toddlers and younger should move on to another episode graded for that age. The Story is called, "The Golden Tears of Great Bear." It is an original story from my "Critter Tales CD" This is really a story within a story. One part of the story is actually true.  The true part is about my nephew eating Spanish moss from the trees in my back yard. The rest of the story is a fictional recount of a great battle between man and beast. We invite you to find out about our storytelling workshops for your school or organization at our website.
