Bill Harley saves the day!

I subsitute teach in seven rural school districts. Battle of the Mad Scientists is one of my "secret weapons" to reward good behavior. Kindergarten through 8th grade LOVE Bill and all of his stories and songs. My own middle-school child has been a Bill Harley fan for years, and his work is our favorite entertainment on long car rides.

Laugh Out Loud...

Bill Harley's stuff is awesome. It has quickly become my kids' favorite thing for a road trip. (Ages 13, 11 and 9)
Great stories that recount Bill's exploits as a youth, which both young and old can relate to.

My kids fade away and lose interest in the standard "Books On Tape" - that run for five hours. Harley's stuff is broken up into little 15 minute stories, songs, etc., that leave you waiting for the next one.

Now, before every road trip, my kids ask if I've gotten any new Bill Harley for the ride.
