Winner 1996 Parents' Choice Gold Award

What reviewers say about Family Stories

"It's a winner. Bates has a gentle and relaxing voice well-suited to the reminiscing stories he tells. Best utilized by teachers for individuals or small groups studying family or oral histories or, better yet, by anyone just for pleasure." - School Library Journal

"Bates' wonderfully comfortable voice makes the listener see the sparkle in his eye as he tells these four tales from a heartwarming sampler. Conveying the spirit of storytelling, it will inspire listeners to spin their own family tales." - American Library Association Booklist

"As real and rare as old paper photographs." - Parents' Choice Magazine
