A couple of years ago, Eric and I recorded Grandpa while he told his stories to our kids. Then for Christmas we made a CD of them for my family. Now we can listen to Grandpa whenever we want. It will be a priceless treasure when he is gone to be able to hear my Grandpa's voice as he sings "Zippady Doo-Dah", impersonates Brer Bear, and Brer Rabit, and performs his Indian chant that he learned on his mission while he tells his amazing stories.
If you or anyone you love has a favorite story to tell, record them so that you can always hear those stories. It is so much better than reading a picture book! Here is one of my favorites-"Brer Rabbit and the Laughing Place". Thanks Grandpa!
