Back when Odds Bodkin was creating his folktales and fairy tales collections for young children, he first issued them on cassettes. As an audio technology, they were soon replaced by CDs. Next came digital downloads, mp3s and other formats, where the audio music business still exists today in the streaming world.
Odds Bodkin’s early recordings are now available on Amazon Alexa. Just ask her to open “Bedtime Stories”, buy a subscription (it’s not much) and find a treasure trove of child-safe stories, all told with characters and live music.
Just ask for an Odds Bodkin story.

They all can be found listening to Odds Bodkin’s award-winning
“I’m so thrilled to have found your website and eagerly await reconnecting with your peerless storytelling.
Some thirty years ago I lived in New Hampshire, where my two young sons and I frequently caught your act. Cassette recordings also entertained us on our twice annual car treks to visit family in Ohio.
Now the boys are grown and living on opposite coasts while their parents have settled in Kentucky. Anticipating grandchildren and, thanks to the pandemic, more long drives to visit family, I went in search of an old favorite road companion. It feels like going home.
Thanks for all you do.”

Odds’ storytelling – including sound effects, voice, music, pacing, wit and style – is both versatile and relevant. It is a talent that needs witnessing and preservation. All the stories I’ve so far listened to have been precise and polished, a cut above anything else I’ve seen from others at live shows and readings. Odds is a true artist, who understands the weight of virtue and fiction. A true role model for the ages. This is one of the best (if not the best purchases/investments) I’ve made all year. I’m excited to share it with my family. At $99, this is really quite a steal … given The Odyssey alone is worth as much. (Not to mention, other such amazing series in this collection – Hercules, The Hidden Grail, etc…)
Well, there are always Odds Bodkin stories to free your child’s mind. The first few seconds are usually enough to engage their attention, even children accustomed to a constant flow of visual stimuli like TV or video games. Odds’ stories are for kids 4 and up. There are many age-appropriate categories.
To buy Odds Bodkin’s audio stories as downloads, you don’t have to go out, which is a good thing nowadays.

It goes without saying: good luck to everyone. Stay safe and healthy. We’re in a national emergency.
At Odds Bodkin’s Shop, instead of buying hand sanitizer bottles for $1.00 and selling them for $70.00 during this emergency, we’ve decided to go the other way.
We’re dropping prices.
The coronavirus is forcing folks to self-isolate, and to make matters worse, the kids are home, too. Needless to say, they won’t be able to hear Odds tell stories at their schools.
So to help keep literacy learning going while kids are at home, we’ve dropped prices on Odds’ audio story collections.
Hours and hours of award-winning family listening. All with original music and characters.
To get your mind off what’s going on.
