I spent a weekend next to the table where the Anis Foundation was playing the CD of the Compilation of Stories of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá volumes 1, 2 and 3. At the end of the weekend I felt I must buy copies for my grandchildren.
The stories are narrated by Sarah Percival, a master of the art of storytelling. The stories originated from Stories of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá adapted by Jaqueline Mehrabi
We are told that ‘Abdu’l-Bahá has been given to us as an example of how we should live our lives. What better way to instil this in our children than by the telling of stories about His life. Having the stories on a CD or MP3 player means that they can be listened to in the car, at bedtime or at family prayer and reflection time.
The stories are also ideal for use in children’s classes. Several of them are the same stories that can be found in Ruhi Book 3, although slightly differently told. In the Ridvan 2010 message the Universal House of Justice encouraged the use of available materials in children’s classes. This is a wonderful resource and I know that it has been used successfully in at least one class.
I have no hesitation in recommending these stories to parents, grandparents and those who are involved in the education of children.
