Note:

"The average story is between 15 and 20 minutes. We have intentionally made them a little longer than our children are used to. Our children are of the "video game" and "rapid action" generation, so chances are, their minds may drift when first listening to a long story (especially younger ones). Don't be discouraged! Be patient and use techniques like:

  1.  Stopping the story part way (before attention wanes) and discussing what they heard or liked or predict will come next, then continue; or
  2.  Having them listen 30 minutes before bedtime, and tell them they can stay up a few minutes longer to talk about the story (children love excuses for delaying bedtime!) Mainly, be patient. It won't take long for their minds to strengthen to a higher level of concentration.

"You will find the results are worth it!"
