Goodwin the Goat

Goodwin the Goat children's book by Don Freeman at The Story HomeHello, we are pleased to announce that our Gayelord the Goat story has just been published in print as Goodwin the Goat! We decided to remake the audio story to reflect his new name to accompany the printed book, which is now available to purchase online through Amazon and other book stores worldwide.

What has Goodwin the Goat done! He’s made a colorful mess of everything and now his life has been turned upside down. Let’s hear what happens as we listen to this delightful and spirited story of a goat who suddenly becomes a work of art in this brand new version by Don Freeman, children’s author of “Corduroy” and many other fine stories.

Note: When you purchase & download Goodwin the Goat, you will receive the entire story which is 7:39 long.  And if you are a fan of Don Freeman, you can more of his stories HERE at The Story Home, along with a special Album that is due to be released by the end of May 2017 entitled, “The Story Home Presents Don Freeman Children’s stories!!  This album will be available very soon on CDbaby, iTunes and Amazon, so stay tuned….

The Story Home App is almost here!  We are thrilled to share this special news.

The App will be available on on itunes in the App/Book/Education Categories for your iPhone, iTouch and iPad. Also, there will be, in the near future, a special link placed The Story Home  home page.

You will notice that the stories will sound better (we’ve remastered each of our 75 stories) and we are adding sound effects to many of the stories such as Cinderella , Jack in the Beanstalk, and Pegasus and the Magic Stone.  Wait until you hear the Jack’s Giant say “Fee Fi Fo Fum”.  You’ll think he’s standing right behind you!

The app is currently nearing the end of the design stage; testing and reviewing will start soon.

We will keep you posted, until then, we wish you a fond farewell…
