Publisher's Summary

Too small to do any of the jobs that she thinks are important, Maria comes home after a disappointing day and cries herself to sleep. She had wanted so much to help, but she just wasn't big enough. That night, as a storm rages outside the family's cottage, Maria learns that "great things are done by those who never stop trying."
Perfect for car trips, bedtime stories, or just for quiet time, this captivating audio anthology emerges from professional author and father of two, A.D. Hasselbring. A Thicket of Tales ignites the imagination, builds self-worth, and strengthens confidence through artfully crafted fairy tales with a contemporary voice. Hasselbring’s innovative, family-friendly storytelling engages children, keeping their minds active through positive characters, new vocabulary, and stunning imagery. As each tale unfolds, it paints vibrant portraits of heroes and heroines and encourages children to explore their boundless imaginations in stories that teach life lessons “with a billow of wind wrapped in a gust of imagination.”

Road trip delight!

We have a 6, 2, and 1 year old and spend a remarkable amount of time in the car and our kids have learned to love audio books. Our kiddos have repeatedly chosen this book to hear for over a year now. Being so little they they love hearing how this little girl was able to accomplish something so big for her family.
