A Quick Look at Jim Weiss Recordings by Title & Suggested Age-Level

Jim Weiss Records from his Home-Studio in Tucson, Arizona

Dear Jim,
Your voice was the soundtrack of my kids childhood – everywhere we went we had different stories playing on the CD player. My son is now a senior at Harvard with a major in Organismal Biology and a minor in Myth and Folklore. We were just talking today about different authors that have shaped him and he said that your stories probably impacted him the most… he is currently in a class on the Arthurian legends… where they were surprised how many Celtic myths he knew… so I asked, “what about the science interests” and he said said, “that too, Galileo and Archimedes…”.

My daughter is a Freshwoman in HS and is taking A.P. Geography where she walks away proudly saying things like, “I already knew a lot of the stuff we were talking about”… which she attributes to the series on the History of the World that we actually listened to (all 4 volumes) from start to finish several times!
I want you to know that I noticed how well written and thoughtful all your short stories on thematic albums were and how easy your voice was to listen to on the longer adventures with Susan Bauer…
Thank you!
