NAPPA 2005: Spoken Word and Storytelling for Infants & Toddlers
By Marilyn McPhie

Nappa Gold Winners
Once upon a time ... Just hearing those words conjures memories of cuddling close and quieting within, allowing oneself to be gently transplanted into another world. It's an expression that, for kids, ranks right up there with "I love you" and "Want some ice cream?" This year's Gold Award-winning recordings envelop children in a rich collection of warm, funny, thought-provoking and reassuring stories.
