    This is an audiobook that is sure to bring families together. Bill Vincent is the author of Children Stories, and he has put this story book together with action, drama, imagination, and so much more. These stories are meant to share the truths of God's word to children without boring them; stories that a child can relate to. These are fairytale type stories, realistic situation stories, fantasy, and a few other genres as well! All the stories are Christian-based and aimed to put a smile on those children we love. This will sure get you closer as a family as you discover the many tales told in this book. Some Christians will cringe when they see witchcraft and wizards. I tell you this world has consumed itself with Harry Potter and witchcraft. These stories that name witchcraft and wizards will have another side to the stories. The stories have Jesus over taking these spiritual battles. It is time for the children of America and the world to know the real difference between good and evil.
