Story Collection Details
This collection of stories came into being because there are stories my children and I tell around the kitchen table, but I don’t use them in performances. My children would occasionally ask me if I was ever going to record those stories and I would say, “We’ll have to see.” In early 2003, I began to consider making such a collection and letting my children take their favorite parts, but I wasn’t sure what we would call it or what it would be like to record what is essentially private time I spend with my kids. then , I heard my son’s third grade class sing for their parents for the first time and all the thoughts I had about this project fell into place. Listening to them sing not only helped me understand what was driving me to make this collection, but also why I wanted my children’s voices on the recording. For me, this collection is a precious drop of the pure joy kids have when they sing with carefree abandon or gleefully share stories with their parents. I wanted to stop time for one brief moment and capture all of the magic that pours freely out of your children so I could have it again and again. In the echoes of their voices I can hear Angel’s Laughter.
I could not have asked for a more enthusiastic group of co-conspirators and I than Miss Sarah, the parents of her students and Central Park School for Children for loaning them to us for this project.
