AllMusic Review by

Tales from 100 to more than 2,000 years old are retold on this new package of Stories From the Hearth. Featuring the expressive talents of three of the Pacific Northwest's most popular storytellers, Kathryn Hurd, Maureen Pedone, and Meghan O'Flaherty, this collection of folk stories from around the world also uses music and sound effects to heighten listener involvement. Richard Sales, Yefim Messin, and John Fahey provide the alternating dramatic and playful soundtrack, composed especially for this production. An entertaining listening refinement tool for children of any age--or anyone who loves a good story.
