“The Eeny Weeny Beeny Ghost” Free Halloween Story Download

My kids love Halloween, but they don’t necessarily like to be scared.

Monster’s Inc. and It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown are about as scary as we can go.  Ten’s best friend is a big fan of Ghost Hunters. Even hearing about an episode is enough to leave the light on all night.

When I received this free October download from Bill Harley on my e-mail I was delighted.  Bill Harley is a two-time Grammy Award winning story-teller.  His story, “The Eeny Weeny Beeny Ghost,” is just my girls’ brand of Halloween scary (not at all.)  I burned it to a CD and played it last night at dinner.  Instead of crying, they were laughing and we were all wanting more Bill Harley stories.

If you don’t know Bill Harley, I’m happy to be the one to tell you about him.  I became a fan about fifteen years ago when I heard him at a Storyteller’s Festival.  It was B.K. (before kids) for me, but I was teaching school and bought a couple of his cassettes to share with my students.

Last year, he performed at another Storyteller’s Festival near my home.  I had sort of forgotten how much fun he was.  My girls loved his performance and we’ve been checking out Bill Harley from the library ever since.  A quick library search pulls up dozens of his audio books and CD’s.  Download this month’s free story, and you’ll continue to get a free download every month.

Although he did sign my cassette tape fifteen years ago, he is not a personal friend and did not ask me to write this.  I’m just a fan.  You and your kids might be too.
