For 20 years, The Story Ship has traveled throughout America working with children in schools to create their own stories and record them in their own voices. The show is hosted by the founder of The Story Ship, Sean Driscoll. Each episode focuses on interesting storytelling facts, recording methods and writing techniques.

Christmas is coming soon and there are a few things not going so well at the North Pole. Santa has a little problem. The kids from Wren Elementary in Piedmont, SC tell us all about Santa's phobia. But don't worry! I think Christmas is going to be just fine this year!

The Story Ship brings you to the forest for the tale of an incredible battle. Warning! This story is not for little little ones. Grade school is fine but toddlers and younger should move on to another episode graded for that age.

The Story is called, "The Golden Tears of Great Bear." It is an original story from my "Critter Tales CD" This is really a story within a story. One part of the story is actually true.  The true part is about my nephew eating Spanish moss from the trees in my back yard. The rest of the story is a fictional recount of a great battle between man and beast.

The Story Ship flies into the future to hear a SciFi story based on an old Aesops Fable, "The Bundle Of Sticks." Kids at Centennial Elementary in Gainesville, GA wrote this story and recorded it in 2005. Today we learn about morals and wisdom tales and how many stories are the same story just told in a different place with different characters or at a different time. Join us for "Ice Breakers."

This episode is for older kids 4th grade and above. There are descriptions of real dangers that early explorers and settlers faced including death. The story is exciting and fun to listen to but not for young children.

Join the Story Ship's Wagon Train for journey out to Western American in the year 1846. Kids from Camden Elementary wrote and recorded this adventure story in 2008. Westward expansion was a major part of the growth of America. Many students in 4th and 5th grades across the United States study the cause and effect of this great movement.

Hold on to your cowboy hats for this exciting adventure.

The Story Ship's Voyage 17 brings us to meet internationally known storyteller, Barry Stewart Mann. I think of Barry as the Ambassador Of Storytelling. He travels the world sharing our culture with others through storytelling.

In this episode, Barry tells us a wonderful story that he wrote years ago about letting go. "Good Grief The Leaf" was created for children but I think you will find this story has a special message that resonates really for adults.
