Story Observations and Listening Tests
We add a lot of detailed observations to all of our stories and it's amazing how even very young children pick up on them. Not everything you hear is prominent in the mix of our audio books, so there are a few more subtle Sound FX in the background to listen out for. Part of my Story Time involves testing the children's listening abilities and a few times I have been very surprised when they were able to tell me they heard a bird flying in the distance or some other background sound. In Johnny No Cash we added an outro we call 'Radio Busy Bees'!
